| LIFE AT WSU | University Police
The Worcester State University Police Department provides a full range of police resources to the university community, including 24-hour patrols, criminal investigations, crime and rape prevention programs, and event security planning. We believe in proactive law enforcement with an emphasis on community policing.Our officers focus on prevention and enforcement of laws and university rules and regulations. We invite everyone on campus to participate in our community policing efforts. This partnership provides you with direct contact and personalized safety services. While we prefer to use proactive means to prevent crime and disruptions—and use alternatives to arrest when reasonable—our 16 sworn officers have enforcement and arrest authority on the Worcester State campus. We also have mutual aid agreements with the Worcester Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police.
Our Operation Identification program is designed to help you protect your mobile computing devices—laptops, tablets, and cell phones, for example—while on campus. Not only are these devices at risk of being stolen if left unattended, their disappearance can lead to identity theft. Consider these statistics:
Step one: Our department will engrave your device with an identifying number.Step two: Register your device. If you are a new student, this service is available before you start classes.IMMEDIATELY REPORT THEFT OF YOUR MOBILE DEVICE TO UNIVERSITY POLICE.
