- Campus Division
The Campus Division of the Moscow Police Department provides police services to the campus community and serves as the liaison between the University of Idaho and the City of Moscow. The goal of the Campus Division of the Moscow Police Department is to develop a strong community policing partnership with the students, staff, faculty, and administration of the University of Idaho. This interactive partnership with the University of Idaho supports a campus environment which is a safe and fun place to study, work, live and recreate.
The Campus Division currently operates out of the UI Memorial Gym, Suite 111, which is located in the center of the University of Idaho campus. The campus office is staffed with one captain and two community policing officers. Three additional campus patrol officers and a detective make up the remaining segment of the Campus Division. Officers assigned to the Campus Division are selected from Moscow Police Department’s roster who desire to be part of the campus effort.
The Campus Division teams up with the University of Idaho office of Public Safety and Security, Homeland Security and Vandal Security to ensure our campus remains one of the safest I the United States. Our officers have daily contact with the University community promoting safety, security, and protection. They provide educational presentations to University living groups, staff and departments on a wide variety of topics such as alcohol abuse, personal safety, sexual assault, drugs, theft, etc. These opportunities allowed our officers to continue building relationships with incoming freshman, returning students, faculty and staff. In addition, the Campus Division also provides security services for all major University events.
