About Community Policing Programming

The Wright State Police Division takes pride in building and maintaining positive relationships within the community. Our goal is to make the community safer and provide excellent service and this is why we strive to maintain a quality community policing program. The goal and focus of our programming is to provide educational training for faculty, staff and students. The programming we offer focus on various safety measures and risk reduction techniques. While the police division focuses these programs on specific topics such as alcohol use awareness, sexual assault awareness, general safety tips, and recognizing distressed individuals and violent intruders, officers are always willing to address other current or prudent educational topics. The Wright State Police Division is always looking to increase awareness and safety on our campus. Below you will find a description of these various educational programs and a request form to start the process. We look forward to serving you, Raider Up!
