Texas A&M University Group


​A POLICE SERVICE REQUEST for service should be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to your event date in order to allow for sufficient planning. If your request is made with less than 2 weeks’ notice there will be no guarantee that an officer(s) will be available for your event. Once the form is completed, it can be faxed to 979-845-6500 or emailed to Maryann at tamupd-specops@tamu.edu


Student Organization


Any student organization is required to complete and submit the APPROVAL TO CHARGE form to the Student Organization Finance Center (SOFC) prior to requesting police service.  Since requests for police service must be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to the event, it is suggested that the Approval to Charge Form be submitted no less than 3 weeks prior to the event. Once the Approval to Charge Form has been received by SOFC, request for police service may be made. The completed POLICE SERVICE REQUEST form must be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to the event date in order to allow for sufficient planning. If your request is made with less than 2 weeks’ notice there will be no guarantee that an officer(s) will be available for your event. Once the form is completed, it can be faxed to 979-845-6500 or emailed to Maryann at tamupd-specops@tamu.edu​


Non-Texas A&M University Group


The Texas A&M University Police Department will not accept requests for police services by non-Texas A&M University System Departments. If your company or organization needs police service while on campus, your request should be made by a sponsoring TAMUS department or student organization.
