Other Security Guard Services

The University of Washington Police Department contracts with other university departments to provide such services as managing, supervising, equipping, scheduling and dispatching. Most security guards, however, are employed by their home department and are not employed by the police department.

The UW Tower guards are one exception. Hourly security guards are another exception. The hourly security guards are employed by the University of Washington Police Department. They fill in for full-time employees on leave or at training. Hourly guards also staff temporary assignments.
