Police Department

Founded in 1966, the Wayne State University Police Department (WSUPD) serves one of Michigan's most diverse and exciting college campuses. Employing a community focused approach to policing, officers patrol 24/7 and collaborate with Warriors to improve the quality of life on campus and throughout Midtown. Each officer is state-certified and has a college degree, and undergoes intensive training before and throughout their career. The WSUPD's work has created one of the nation's 50 safest college campus, resulted in an emergency response time of 90 seconds, and been recognized by the New York Times for its role in Detroit's resurgence.
