On behalf of the men and women of the Weber State University Police Department, I welcome you. This website has been designed to introduce you to the various programs and services provided by the WSU Police Department, and to provide you some basic crime prevention tips so that you can avoid victimization.
Utah Criminal Code 76-8-708 and 53B-3-105 authorizes higher educational institutions to appoint police officers. Weber State University’s Board of Trustees exercise that authority in establishing our department.
The WSU Police Department provides complete police services for the university community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our office is located at 4060 Tyler Avenue, which is directly northeast of Promontory Tower. WSU officers have state police authority on any property owned or occupied by the university and on any street, highway, or interstate in Utah. As such, WSU officers are responsible for the investigation of all criminal offenses and vehicle accidents occurring in and around campus, and for enforcement of all traffic regulations.
All WSU officers are certified graduates of the Utah Law Enforcement Academy. Though our department is obligated to discharge its law enforcement functions as a means of preserving a safe and peaceful community for academic pursuit, we have not forgotten the caring, human elements of our services profession.
I welcome your comments and suggestions regarding our department and our services. Our officers are available to provide demonstrations and discussions on a variety of topics. We look forward to being of assistance to you during your stay at WSU and welcome the opportunity to be a resource for you or your organization.
Chief, WSU Police Dept.
