University Police

The Anderson University Police/Security Services Department employs five full-time sworn police officers and employs student security officers to assist with patrolling. Campus police officers are authorized by the State of Indiana to investigate crimes, complaints, to make arrests, and to enforce federal, state and local laws, including traffic laws.

Campus police and student officers patrol the campus on foot and in patrol vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During late evening hours, up to three officers are on duty to check buildings, including the student center, residence hall lounges, and other places students congregate.

The campus police department’s jurisdiction is bounded by the White River (west), Scatterfield Road (east), East 8th Street (south) and Cross Street (north). Officers have a working relationship with and share information of mutual concern with state, local and federal police departments.
