Safety Escort Services

The Safety Escort Service (Eagle Patrol) provides an escort on foot for any University of Mary Washington student, faculty or staff member from one point on campus to another during hours of darkness; generally beginning at 9:00pm. During all other times, safety escorts are performed by a UMW Police.

Eagle Patrol Safety Escorts are identified by bright traffic vest and are labeled Eagle Patrol on the front and back. They also carry police radios in order to maintain contact with police emergency communications center.

To request a safety escort, contact the University Police by using one of the emergency Blue Light phones on campus or call at 540-654-4444. Students are encouraged to pre-program this phone number into their cell phones.

IT IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE TO WAIT INSIDE YOUR VEHICLE OR BUILDING UNTIL THE RESPONDING STAFF ARRIVE BUT PLEASE DO NOT KEEP THE STAFF MEMBERS WAITING FOR YOU TO COME TO THE DOOR/GET OUT OF THE CAR WHILE YOU FINISH PHONE CALLS, READING, ETC.

If you are interested in applying for an Eagle Patrol position, please contact Sgt William Somers wsomers@umw.edu.
