Perception: The UConn Police Department’s budget is too large.

Truth: UConn Police provides services to all seven UConn campuses: Storrs, Hartford, Waterbury, Stamford, Avery Point, the Law School and UConn Health in Farmington, not just Storrs. This includes 24-hour, 7-day-a-week staffing year round. Despite this, the budget for the UConn Police Department represents only about 0.5% of UConn’s budget.
