The University of Washington Police Department (UWPD) welcomes you to our home on the web. We are proud to provide professional law enforcement services and support to the University of Washington. As an internationally accredited CALEA agency, we hold ourselves to the highest standards and follow best practices for law enforcement organizations, providing 24-hour law enforcement response to the University of Washington community. We invite you to engage with us as we endeavor to foster and maintain an environment that supports everyone’s well-being.
Although no campus is free from crime, we are committed to collaborating with you to create a safe place to live, work and study. As a full-service law enforcement agency, we are here 24 hours a day throughout the year with our own 9-1-1 dispatch center, detective unit and community engagement unit among other functions. By working together with you and all our other partners across the campus and across the region, we address quality of life issues along with criminal activity. We look forward to continued collaboration with you throughout the year. I hope you find the information on our Web site helpful as you continue to live, work and study at the University of Washington.
