Clery/Investigative Services 

The Clery and Investigative Unit is made up of a Clery Lieutenant, Detective Sergeant, and Detective. This unit works closes with other members of the department as well as other departments around the University to ensure the University is within federal guidelines of the Clery Act as well as conducting thorough and efficient investigations. 

The Detective Sergeant also serves as the Victim Services and Community Outreach Sergeant. 

Patrol Services 

WCU Patrol Officers are oftentimes the first point of face-to-face contact that you will have when requiring police assistance. These officers are responsible for the majority of community interaction and are the ones who respond to calls for service. Our patrol officers are on campus 24/7/365 and ready to respond to anything at a moments notice.

Specialty Services

Bike Patrol

WCUPD Bike Patrol

WCUPD Bike Patrol

Several members of the WCU Police Department are certified bike officers. These officers are identified by wearing a neon yellow uniform shirt and will probably have a bicycle nearby. Bike patrol bridges a gap between vehicle patrol and foot patrol. Bikes can be operated on streets, sidewalks and alleys which make them well suited for patrolling campus during athletic and community events. 


WCUPD K9 Division

WCUPD K9 Division

At this time, we have two K9’s working for the WCU Police Department. Lando is a Belgian Malinois that joined the WCU PD in 2023 as a trained explosives detection canine. You will see Lando, and his handler Cpl. Conner Wilson, around campus on patrol and doing safety sweeps prior to large scale special events.  

Sasha is a chocolate lab that has been a member of the WCU PD for almost her entire life. She is a Therapy dog in training and can be seen around campus with her “mom” Sgt. Tammy Pavey. Sasha enjoys going to classes and getting loved on by students. Feel free to contact Sgt. Pavey if you would like for Sasha to pay your class a visit!
