The patrol officers assigned to the precinct provide first-level police services to our community. The patrol officers are responsible for providing round-the-clock preventive and suppressive patrols designed to minimize the occurrence of crime, to locate and apprehend criminal suspects, and to enforce traffic and other safety related laws and ordinances.

A message from Major Irizarry

  defrance_medctrAs the Major of Medical Center Precinct. I am so excited to be a part of  Vanderbilt University Medical Center. At VUPD, our number one priority is  safety for our staff, faculty, students, patients, and visitors. I would also like to  add another priority – that of SERVICE. We like to consider VUPD and the  Vanderbilt University Medical Center a partnership with the same goals – that  of safety, security, and service. If I can help you in any way, please email me.  



 Meet our Lieutenants
