University Police Department
The Worcester State University Police Department’s main priority is to provide the safest and most secure environment possible for the students, faculty, staff, and visitors that comprise the institution’s community. We believe that safety is everyone’s responsibility and encourage our students, faculty, and staff to engage in community policing and to report any suspicious activity to Worcester State University Police. Policing is provided 24 hours a day throughout the calendar year by a full-time staff of sworn police officers, security officers, and dispatchers. Worcester State Police officers enforce the rules and regulations of Worcester State in conjunction with applicable state and federal laws. The department also provides crime prevention programs and seminars scheduled at intervals throughout the year as well as ad hoc programs when requested by any constituent of the Worcester State University community.
