UCA Police are the required method of security for events held on campus or off-campus within Faulkner County.

UCAPD, in consultation with the Office of Student Life, will determine the amount of police needed to work the event.

Any “open” event must have uniformed police officers with arrest authority present at the event.

Closed events may be required to have police officers present depending on the judgment of UCAPD in consultation with Student Life staff.

Events outside Faulkner County must have another security agency working the event and their information must be provided to UCAPD.

Contact Deadlines

Any events within Faulkner County: RSOs must contact UCAPD no later than fourteen (14) days prior to an event to make security arrangements.

Events outside of Faulkner County: UCAPD will not work off-campus events outside of Faulkner County. Documentation of the security agency working the event must be submitted to UCAPD thirty (30) days in advance and include the contact name and phone number for the agency.

RSOs must arrange security prior to registration on CubConnect.

RSO events will not be approved if they do not meet these deadlines.

Contact Information

To contact UCA Police about an event, please email Captain Jamie Boothe at jboothe@uca.edu. Captain Boothe has requested he be emailed rather than called as he checks his email regularly whether in or out of the office.

Event Supplies

Most Social Events require supplies that are rented from the Student Life Office. (An approval message in CubConnect will tell you if supplies are needed or not.) Supplies need to be picked up from the Student Life Office the afternoon before the event between 1 PM and 4:30 PM. Supplies for events on the weekend need to be picked up on Friday. All supplies should be returned no later than the close of business (4:30 PM) on the business day following the event.
If supplies are not returned by the specified time, Student Life will enforce the following:
  • If supplies are not returned by this deadline, a $15 per day late fee will be charged.
  • If items are not returned within one week of the return date or have been lost/misplaced, the organization will be charged the full replacement cost for the item(s).
  • All RSO privileges will be suspended until any late fees or replacement costs are received.
