Washburn University Police Department (WUPD) is a certified law enforcement agency with the same responsibilities and authority as a city police agency or a sheriffs department. WUPD was established in 1996 in response to a need to make access to law enforcement more timely and practical for individuals on campus. Officers, staff and communications specialists are guided in their daily activities by our core values.
