The Texas A&M International University Police Department provides the Motorist Assistance Program (MAP) for Students, Faculty, Staff, and guests free of charge. We are not mechanics, but we will try to help with problems related to your vehicle.

Free Service

There is no charge for any of the services provided under the MAP program, but because there is a chance that we may unintentionally damage your car, we ask that you waive any claim for any damages which might result from University Police Officers providing assistance to you.

We will ask you for the following when providing the service:

  • Waive any claim for any damages which may result from the attempt
