The VUPD Special Events Unit, led by Captain Mark Stannard, is responsible for coordinating police presence at athletic events, concerts, parties, and other special events on campus. VUPD provides traffic control, interior patrol and crowd control personnel for over 400 events each year. To supplement our security presence, VUPD also employs contract security officers and our own Community Service Officers for these events. The office of Special Events also provides police protection and escorts for visiting football teams and other dignitaries involved in University functions.
The Special Events Form should be filled out and submitted 14 days prior to the planned event.
