Application Instructions for UT System Administration positions

As diversity within law enforcement is an ever increasing topic of concern, gender diversity continues to be an issue all agencies seek to improve in an effort to better represent the communities they serve.  With this in mind, several agencies, including UTA PD, have come together to produce a marketing campaign that is aimed at enhancing the viewpoint of women toward careers in law enforcement.  This campaign will be assisted statewide through efforts of the Texas Police Chiefs Association.  We want to take this opportunity to give you a glimpse of the video (link below) that will be shown in movie theaters across the state.  Additionally, we will start incorporating this video into our recruiting efforts through our website and social media channels, beginning next week. 

We hope you have an opportunity to view this video and welcome any input you may have on this endeavor. 

Thank you for your time.
