Sample ID Card


OU Police is responsible for credentialing all law enforcement personnel, police contractors, and several specialized teams essential to the safety and security of our community.

To apply for an ID card, complete an ID Card Request and report to 128 Police & Support Services Building to have your photo taken.  Bring a non-expired government photo identification with you.  Some fields on the ID Card Request form are specific to certain positions only and may not be required.

If a background check is required, fingerprinting will occur at the time your photo is taken.  A completed Background Check Authorization is required before the background check will be conducted.

Questions may be directed to the police service desk at 248-370-3407 or electronically at

General student, faculty, and staff ID’s are issued by the ID Card Office.
