WKU Police Department

Message from the Chief

Western Kentucky University Police department is committed to building and fostering partnerships through community policing across campus and in the Bowling Green-Warren County area. We believe our relationships with the community reduce crime and enhances the quality of life for students, faculty, staff and guests. Our police department is accredited through the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police (KACP) and is committed to providing quality service to the WKU community and its guest.

Our organization is a team of well-trained men and women who are dedicated to serving our community and we work diligently to provide a safe environment to study, live, work and socialize. 

The Western Kentucky University Police offer training programs for students, faculty and staff as additional resources to the WKU community.  Please take time to explore our website for additional campus safety tools and resources, including our Annual Campus Security Report for statistics and information on university services.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or suggestions that will enable us to better serve your safety and security needs.


Best Regards,




Interim Chief Walker
