Safety and Security
Will you need security or a VUPD officer?
- Security is required for events at which alcohol is present, for large events, and for events open to the general public. Consult your event manager and VUPD (615-322-2745) to determine your specific needs, or inquire at the weekly Special Event Registration Committee meeting. Depending on the nature of the event, you may be allowed to hire private, third-party security, as opposed to uniformed VUPD officers. Both VUPD and private security can be arranged through VUPD.
- Request VUPD Security for your event by completing this form.
Having an event under a tent?
- You may need a fire watch if you will have more than 300 attendees. Fill out the Fire Watch Personnel form below and we can determine your event’s specific needs.
