The Wake Forest University Police Department (WFUPD) seeks to develop a positive and lasting relationship with the University community. All members of the department strive to provide competent and courteous services that are critical to the achievement of the Department’s overall mission for a safe, secure, and enjoyable community in which to live and work.

WFUPD is dedicated to providing the University community with the highest level of service in identifying and preventing crime, but is also dedicated to providing a number of non-criminal services to the community.  At this time we provide the following extended services:

LiveSafe – LiveSafe is a free personal mobile application for Wake Forest University students, staff, and faculty to engage in a two-way conversation with WFU police.

Emergency Call Boxes – The WFU Emergency Phone System is designed to aid in providing safety and security to the university community.  Emergencies or criminal activity can be reported directly to police even in remote areas.  Anyone who needs assistance should use the phones for immediate contact with University Police.

Victim Support – The University Police Department’s Victim Support Program was established to provide services to anyone who may become a victim of crime while on the campus. The Victim Support Program maintains close working relationships with other local and state victim service providers, and is a member of the North Carolina Victim Assistance Network. All services are free and confidential.

RAD – A program to develop and enhance the options of self-defense so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attacked.
