UWPD Community Outreach Tabling Events. Members of the UWPD team will be setting up at a location near you to talk crime prevention, get your gear registered (bicycles, cell phones, laptops and more!) and let you know about upcoming events sponsored by the UWPD. Stop by and say hi!

None scheduled for July 2015–but stay tuned!


R.A.D.: Free Self-Defense Training for Women. The University of Washington Police Department (UWPD) will be offering free self-defense training in 2015. Check the RAD page for updates.

The program trains women in Rape Aggression Defense (RAD), simple yet effective self-defense designed for women on university and college campuses. The program teaches realistic measures to take that do not require special skills, years of practice, or any particular level of fitness.

The UWPD offers RAD for free to community members, including faculty, students, and staff as well as our neighbors in the University District. Class participants praise the class for “inspiring” them and helping make them feel “much more confident” and “empowered.” Students have told us they are proud that they completed the simulation training. For more information, email the program administrator.


UW Police Department Groundbreaking Ceremony.

We had a Groundbreaking Shovelsfabulous time! Thank you to everyone who attended–we’ll see you back here for the Grand Opening in 2016!!

After forty-five years in our current location, the UW Police Department looks forward to the construction of a new police facility, built for the needs of our department and our community. Join us as we reflect on the department’s past achievements and usher in a new era of safety, security and community policing with P.R.I.D.E.
