The university is located within the city limits of Little Rock, Arkansas. Therefore all federal, state, and local laws apply to the campus. The university has adopted certain rules and regulations to provide for the safety and security of persons and property on campus. The UA Little Rock police officers are constituted peace officers and possess all the powers provided by law for city police and county sheriffs, to be exercised as required for the protection of the state institution. The university police are also responsible for determining the necessity of advisory, control, and regulatory signs, other measures for safety, and the proper flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic on campus. Such officers are authorized and empowered to arrest, with or without a warrant, any person on the campus who is in violation of federal, state, or local felony laws or any person who commits a misdemeanor in the presence of the officer.

Traffic regulations are normally distributed by the DPS during orientation and registration periods. Copies may be obtained from DPS, the Student Government Association (SGA), and the DSC Information Center.
