Welcome to the University of Mary Washington Police Department website. The UMW PD is a full-service police department providing 24-hour patrol coverage, investigative services, and crime prevention strategies to the UMW community. All of us at the UMW Police Department are committed to providing the highest level of professional police and public safety services to foster a safe learning and working environment for our students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors in support of UMW’s mission.
Although reported crime at UMW is low, it is important for students, faculty, staff, and visitors
to remember that we are located in an urban setting. Therefore, we share many of the crime and
safety issues that exist in any city. In partnership with the community, we work to prevent crime
and solve problems that affect students, faculty, and staff. The safety and security of the
University is the combined responsibility of the entire community.
Our community policing philosophies reinforce our commitment to outreach, education, and close partnerships with members of the community. We recognize that we can accomplish our mission only with the support and trust of the University community and through partnering with the community to carry out our programs.
Please take time to familiarize yourself with our resources and by using the information
provided on this website, you will be helping us to help you in the pursuit of a safe campus.
Should you have suggestions on improving this website or public safety on campus please share
them with me at email@example.com.
