all university police officers are employed be their state.

university police have the same power as a state trooper. they can

pull you over anywhere in the state they preside in.Answer

I'm a university police officer. I went to the same academy as

my municipal counterparts. I enforce the same laws and in some

cases make more money. I patrol a 3 square mile area and have

statewide jurisdiction. The majority of my patrol area is off

campus in the neighborhood surrounding the campus.
