Campus Police Mission Statement

The Wittenberg University Police Division is a comprehensive full-service police and security agency that exists to serve and protect our students, faculty, staff and guests. Our mission is to provide a safe and secure living and learning environment by actively partnering with the campus community. As such, we take a proactive and progressive approach to campus policing in dedication to the protection of life and property; the preservation of peace, order and safety; the enforcement of local, state, and federal laws as well as university policies and procedures.

The department recognized that learning occurs both in and outside of the classroom and is committed to supporting student's social and co-curricular life by helping them make good decisions about the activities they engage. We understand the importance of developing positive relationships with students so that we can effectively serve, mentor and educate them.

We, as a department, pledge to treat all persons with respect, dignity, integrity and compassion; to respect diverse social and cultural customs and values, to protect individuals and their rights, to uphold the law, and to strive for excellence in every service that we provide.
