VWCC Police

Welcome to the Virginia Western Police Department's website. The Virginia Western Police Department is dedicated to serving our campus community by creating and maintaining a safe, secure environment that encourages the free flow of ideas and learning.

Our agency currently maintains eight certified police officers as well as one part time security officer. Our duties vary from maintaining vigilant attention to Homeland Security issues to simply jump starting your car when your battery fails. We are a full service agency with First Aid medical training as well as CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) certifications.

Our mission is to the service of the campus community while maintaining an effective productive relationship with our community. Please contact us at any time; we look forward to serving you.
