The primary purpose of the USAPD vehicle patrol officer is to deter criminal activity and report any abnormal/irregular conditions they may find while driving through the property. These conditions may include, but are not limited to, property damage, lights out or unsecured doors/access points. Patrol officers also respond to property alarms thus reducing calls to the police department which can result in significant charges. All drivers are licensed officers with the Department of Public Safety and have valid driving licenses through the Texas Department of Transportation. All vehicles carrier full insurance and are registered with the State of Texas.
