Ensuring Safety Across Campus
Police and Security provides support to the Case Western Reserve University community, from responding to emergencies to traffic control, patrolling to event security.
With more than 20 police officers, over 10 mobile security officers and more than 15 facility security officers, we work to ensure the safety of our entire campus—indoors and out. Our trained officers have real-world experience that they use every day on the job.
In addition, we work closely with our neighboring police departments—University Circle, Cleveland, East Cleveland and Cleveland Heights—to act quickly and efficiently in case of an emergency.
But beyond reacting to serious events, our officers promote prevention. After all, a safe campus starts with all of us.
To help ensure the safety of our community, we offer:
- Training in areas such as self-defense, active-shooter response and more;
- Safe Ride and walking escorts to make sure you reach your destination safely;
- Emergency communications options, such as Rave Alerts and the CWRU Shield reporting app; and
- Myriad other services, including bike registration, fingerprinting and lost and found.
