Campus Safety & Security is a team of people committed to ensuring the safety and security of the UW Tacoma campus community, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
We are a non-commissioned department, and work as security liaisons with local emergency responders, including the Tacoma Fire Department, Tacoma Police Department and Pierce County Emergency Management.
UW Tacoma Campus Safety & Security Department staff are not law enforcement. We work in partnership with City of Tacoma Police Department for emergencies that require law enforcement response. City of Tacoma Police officers spend time getting to know our people and our campus. City of Tacoma Police Department will quickly respond to violent crimes and other incidents beyond the capabilities of the Campus Security staff.
