The Raider Patrol component of the MTSU Police Department consists of Middle Tennessee State University students performing duties and functions as non-sworn uniformed personnel. As part-time, student employees they do not engage in law enforcement activities. Members of Raider Patrol provide safety escorts for our campus community upon request through our Communications Center at (615) 898-2424; dial 2424 from campus phones. Raider Patrol personnel also check and secure doors and windows of University buildings, as well as assist and support the University Police Department with parking for events and other special assignments as needed.
Members of Raider Patrol benefit the University Police Department and enhance safety for the University in many ways by being available to offer assistance to the campus community, our police officers, and through their presence to make observations that require police response.
