The Wilberforce Campus Police Department became a law enforcement agency in May 1991 by action of the Wilberforce University Board of Trustees. All officers have received the required hours of basic training and are certified by the State of Ohio Peace Officers Training Council. Officers are armed and are required to complete annual firearm qualification.
Located in the basement of the Wolfe building, the department provides 24 hour, seven day-a-week services to the campus community. The department presently consists of 5 sworn officers: Police Chief, 2 Sergeants, and 2 Officers.
