The UOPD is transitioning to a fully sworn police agency over the next five years. Part of this transition is the recruitment and selection for the newly created full time police officer 2 position. Police officers are responsible for maintaining peace and public safety through enforcement of laws, performing traffic control, and providing emergency services on University of Oregon owned and controlled properties. Police officers must interact effectively with the campus community (students, faculty, staff, administrators, visitors, and members of the public). Police officers must demonstrate trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, communication, justice, fairness, caring, civic virtue, and citizenship, while maintaining integrity, ethical values, pride, and professionalism.
The UOPD is a community-oriented and trust-based policing agency within the University of Oregon. The UOPD plays an integral role in the university community by providing a safe, secure, and welcoming environment. The mission is to foster a climate that encourages a free, open, and civil exchange of ideas, in support of the education, research, and public service goals of the university. The UOPD recognizes and promotes the value of multiculturalism and inclusiveness consistent with a spirit of responsible citizenship within an international community. The University of Oregon is a diverse and ever changing community. Constant efforts by the UOPD are necessary to partner with and educate the community to deter, reduce, and solve crimes as well as to resolve issues through modern policing.**For complete job announcement and application materials go to our website and click on Staff Job Postings under Classified (Union-represented) Positions or contact Human Resources, 677 East 12th Ave., Suite 400, 5210 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403, 541-346-3159.**
