Bicycle and Segway Patrol
Officers frequently utilize department bicycles and segways to patrol the campus. Bicycle and segway patrols are an important part of the department's commitment to community oriented policing.
Community Oriented Policing
A variety of crime prevention materials and programs are available through our Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS). We work closely with the campus housing staff, student health center and the office of the Vice President for Student Affairs to assist community members whenever possible. If you are interested in any of these programs or materials, call us at 867-6832 or stop by the department in the Seminar I Building.
CrimeWatch is a group of students who patrol the campus and act as an extra set of eyes and ears for campus police. They help protect vehicles from vandalism and thefts, dorm residences from burglars and thieves, provide safety escorts and assist the department with non-law enforcement duties. CrimeWatch students are employed by the Evergreen Campus Police as Public Safety Assistants. For more information, call 360-867-6832 or ext. 6832.
Evergreen's Emergency Communications Operators (ECO's) most important function is taking emergency phone calls. They're trained similarly to 911 telecommunicators and are the main communications link both to and from officers on patrol. ECO's also act as the campus operator. The department's non-emergency (business) number is 867-6832.

All Lost and Found property will be kept for 60 days according to State law and disposed of by auction, donation to non-profit, distruction or converted to Police Services according to State law.

Campus police officers perform patrol and emergency response functions on and around Evergreen's 1000 acre campus. For emergencies, dial 911 or 360-867-6140.
Personal Safety Escorts
If students, staff or faculty are working or studying late and don’t have others to accompany them to their residence hall or car during the hours of darkness, they are incouraged to call for a personal safety escort. CrimeWatch will accompany the requester on foot or by vehicle to their destination on or adjacent to campus.
If officers are available, they can provide community members with safety escorts after dark as well. Call Police Services non-emergency number 360-867-6832 or ext. 6832 to request an escort by either a CrimeWatch student or a police officer. *If officers are on urgent calls for service and there is no one else available you may experience a lengthy delay with non-emergent requests.
If you feel unsafe for any reason on campus, call 911 or Police Services Emergency number 360-867-6140.
