The WSU Police Department is comprised of police officers who are commissioned by the City of Detroit and have the same responsibilities and authority as any police officer in Michigan. They patrol the Wayne State University area in patrol cars, on foot, mountain bikes, and motorcycles, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A group of civilian cadets also patrol the area, keeping radio contact with the dispatch center.
In the event of any type of emergency, please DO NOT dial 911. Contact the front desk of your housing unit or call 313-577-2222.
Approximately 297 Emergency Telephones blanket the WSU campus. 176 of these Blue Light emergency phones are located at outdoor locations across campus. 121 emergency phones are indoor emergency phones with one located inside every elevator of every campus building. All of these phones are easy to operate and may be used as either a direct line to the WSUPD Dispatch Center or to make free calls to on-campus telephone numbers. To operate these phones in an emergency, simply push the red "emergency" button of the front of the phone panel. There is no need to dial a phone number as the emergency phone will make a direct connection to the WSUPD Dispatch Center automatically and the call will be received as an incoming emergency services request.
