Message From The Chief

Hello, I'm Frank Young, Chief of Police for Tulane University, and on behalf of the men and women of our department, I'd like to welcome you to our website.

The Tulane University Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency that provides police services to the Uptown Campus, the Downtown Medical Center Campus and the National Primate Research Center located in Covington. 

On November 21, 2015, The TUPD received accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). We strive to adhere to its nationally recognized standards and best practices for the delivery of police services.

At Tulane University, we believe that safety is a shared responsibility shared among the police department, students, staff, and faculty. Our mission is to assist the university community in providing a safe and secure environment in which to learn, live, and work. We accomplish this by providing a variety of police services that are explained throughout this website. We believe in practicing community policing and working with departments throughout the university to help us provide a safe campus environment.

I would encourage you to continually visit this website for information about our police department, our services and how to stay safe on campus.  I welcome your feedback or comments, please feel free to reach out to me at:

Again, welcome to the Tulane University police website, and Geaux Green Wave!
