The UWPD detectives in the Support Services Bureau investigate all felony crimes committed on campus, including burglary, embezzlement, assault, robbery, arson and drug cases. Detectives work a set schedule but are called in, as needed, to investigate major crime scenes and interview suspects, witnesses and victims. Detectives collaborate with other Puget Sound law enforcement agencies to share information on crime trends and activity. Detectives also assist in dignitary and VIP protection details and “stand-by to keep the peace” assignments. In addition, they conduct background investigations on prospective departmental employees.
