Rice organizes its 1st Department of Safety in 1967. Two years later the State of Texas passes legislation that enables universities to create police departments. The state authorizes the Rice University Police Department in 1970. Today RUPD operates 24/7 and employs 30 licensed and commissioned police officers, 7 security specialists and civilian office personnel.
