University Police & Visitor Center sign


Over the years, the University of Virginia's Police Department has won four Governor's Awards for its crime prevention activities. These activities include seminars, self defense classes, brochures, posters, building security evaluations, and other special programs on a daily basis. Officers trained in Crime Prevention through Environmental Design work with facility planners during new design and construction of buildings to meet crime prevention goals. Crime Prevention also releases information to the public involving incidents that are believed to be a threat to students, staff, or the general public.
