Emergency Information

At Walsh University, the safety of our students is of the highest priority. Walsh’s Campus Police Department’s primary goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for the campus community. The staff consists of sworn law enforcement officers who are certified by the Ohio Peace Officers Training Council. The officers have full arrest power, are armed with weapons, and are able to provide all necessary police services on the University property.

Please be advised that as sworn law enforcement officers, Campus Police are qualified to use appropriate force in life threatening situations. The "Use of Deadly Force Policy" appears in the Campus Police Department manual and can be reviewed by consulting the Chief of Campus Police of the Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students.

Officers are identified by their white police shirts, gold badge, and Walsh University Campus Police sleeve patches.
