Spotlight on the University of Montevallo Police Department

University of Montevallo

The University of Montevallo Police Department is responsible for maintaining campus security and providing a safe environment for campus life. Our goal is to support everyone in their educational pursuit by maintaining a safe community that is conducive to the spirit of learning. We provide the University with a full service Public Safety Agency that is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We encourage prompt reporting of all crimes and suspicious activity to the Campus Police to assist us in providing the best possible service. The Police Department strives to provide personal service to students to help insure their safety on campus such as:

Protective Escort Services

The University of Montevallo utilizes a state-of-the-art rapid alert system called UMAlert. This system provides members of the campus community with the most advanced rapid communication program currently available for schools. UMAlert enhances the timeliness of UM’s emergency communications and provides the University with a convenient and effective tool for informing students, faculty and staff or human or natural threats. Through UMAlert, members of the University community, whether on campus or not, can be notified within moments of an urgent event. Emergency messages can be sent via telephone (landline and cell), voicemail, text messaging and email. New user accounts are automatically registered twice a month (on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays). Students may add parent emails/phone numbers as needed to their UMAlert contact list by updating their information online. To register for UM Alert or to update your account information go to and use your official UM username and password.

UM Alert Emergency Notifications

Through UM Alert, members of the university community can be notified within moments of an urgent event, whether they are on campus or not. Emergency messages can be sent via phone, voicemail, text message or email. To register for UM Alert go to and use your official UM username and password.
