The Worcester State University Police Department’s main priority is to provide the safest and secure environment possible for the students, faculty, staff and visitors that comprise the institution’s community. We believe that safety is everyone’s responsibility and encourage our students, faculty and staff to engage in community policing and report any suspicious activity to University Police.
Policing is provided 24 hours a day throughout the calendar year by a full-time staff of 16 sworn, armed police officers and 3 residence hall security officers. University Police officers enforce the rules and regulations of Worcester State University in conjunction with applicable State and Federal laws.
Our philosophy and mission is to enhance the “community policing” model to all members of the campus, including students, staff and faculty. With your help and your prompt reporting of any suspicious activity, along with the campus police and their continued efforts to remain visible by cruisers, foot and bike patrols, we can minimize the dangers of crimes occurring within our community.
The Department also provides crime prevention programs and seminar scheduled at intervals throughout the year as well as ad hoc programs when requested by any constituent of the university community. The University Police and Parking Clerk's offices are located on the first floor of Wasylean Hall.
