The University Security Department was a section connected with the Service Department since the foundation of the Tafila Technical University. Due to the expansion of the university in terms of buildings and the number of students as well as academic and administrative staff, the duties and tasks assigned to that section increased. Thus, there was a great demand for establishing the Security Department in order to keep the continuation and the sustainability of the university security. On 9/3/2014, the security Department was formed to ensure and sustain security in all fields and facets of the university. The Security Department includes the following sections:
- The University Security Section which oversees security inside the university campus by preventing fights, quarrels, chaotic marches, riots and all the threats that the university might face. They as well check the identity of the university visitors.
- The Public Safety Section which pursues the security and safety of the university employees and students.
