Police Authority

Under Virginia law, the University Police have the mandate and authority to investigate all crimes occurring on the campus. The department’s jurisdiction applies to all University owned, leased, rented, or controlled property and the streets and sidewalks adjacent there to. The authority, responsibility, and training of the University Police are as required of any other police officer in the Commonwealth. All crimes should be reported directly to the University Police by dialing 4444 from any campus telephone or by pressing the call  button on an emergency blue light telephone. Persons off campus needing to contact the police should dial 540.654-1025. The reporting of crime occurring on campus to any other agency such as the Fredericksburg Police Department, will delay the response while they transfer the complaint.
