The goal of the UTMB Police Crime Prevention Unit is to reduce the incidence of crimes against persons and property on the University of Texas Medical Branch Campus through public education. The Crime Prevention Unit accomplishes its mission by the dissemination of information through crime prevention programs to students, faculty and staff.

Although the department considers all of its officers crime prevention officers, the department has seven designated crime prevention specialists. They are Sgt. Anthony DeRanieri, Officer Curtis Dorsey, Officer Glen Mulvaney, Sgt. Oliver Scott, Officer Johnny Soliz , Officer Ray Wiley and Public Safety Officer Elona Stinson-Herron

We encourage all departments to take advantage of these services.

Safety Watch Program: The UTMB Police Department provides a Safety Watch program for employees, students and visitors.

During the hours of Dusk to Dawn, officers will either walk with the individuals or provide a ride in a UTMB Police Department vehicle to any building on campus or to the individual's vehicle if it is Parked in one of the UTMB parking garage.

Safety Watches may be requested by either telephoning UTMB Police Dispatch at (409)772-2691 or asking an officer.

Depending upon the emergency and non-emergency services being provided by the UTMB Police Department at the time of the call, a Safety Watch is usually provided within fifteen minutes.
