It is the position of the University Police Department that among the violations of misconduct considered to be of an especially serious nature are those that represent a threat to the safety and health of members of the University Community. These include but are not limited too, harassment, physical violence or threat of violence, non-consensual sexual contact, rape or any form of sexual violence.
CRIME PREVENTION is achieved through education and awareness. The Crime Prevention Officer's function is to provide crime prevention services to students, staff and faculty. The Officer provides a wide range of educational programs, including rape awareness, drug and alcohol awareness, personal safety, theft prevention, vandalism, and related issues. The officer is also available to meet the special educational needs of campus groups and organizations.
CRIME PREVENTION is a high priority for the WKU Police Department. Activities are based upon a dual concept of eliminating and/or minimizing criminal opportunities when possible and encouraging students, faculty and staff to share safety responsibilities.
