LeTourneau University is a private institution and therefore access to the campus, buildings, and grounds is limited to students, faculty, staff, and invited guests. Presence on the campus is not a right but a privilege, and university personnel--including University Police and local law enforcement agencies--have the right to remove people from campus upon request.
The University Police Department is our first line of protection; however, the University also has a cooperative relationship with the City of Longview Police Department, the Gregg County Sheriff's Department, and Texas Highway Patrol. These law enforcement agencies are authorized to enforce the law in order to add to the safety of our campus. University Police is here to provide service to the students, faculty, and staff of LeTourneau University. It cannot function effectively without the concerned assistance of responsible students and employees; the department depends on students to call and report all suspicious persons or activities.
Do not assume that someone else has already called, and do not send an email assuming that someone will retrieve it immediately.
