Statement from the University Police Department

November 10, 2016
All University Students
Michael A. Gibson, Chief of Police

Dear Students:

The University of Virginia Police Department takes seriously its mission to serve and protect the UVA community. Our officers consider it an honor to work for a University that prides itself on the virtues of honor, trust and integrity.

I was disappointed to learn of reports that UPD personnel allegedly used the public address system in their vehicle inappropriately following the results of the election in the early morning hours on Wednesday. UPD is investigating this incident and takes this matter seriously.

Please be assured that UPD remains committed to the highest professional standards in law enforcement and will work tirelessly to enhance the safety of our living and learning environment.

Michael A. Gibson
Chief of Police
