SWOSU Campus Police personnel attend regular meetings with local law enforcement agencies to exchange ideas and problems which may be of concern for the University community.
Dispatchers are available at these respective telephone numbers 24 hours a day to answer your call. In response to a call, SWOSU Campus Police or the Weatherford Police Department will take the required action, dispatching an officer, or asking the victim to report to SWOSU Campus Police to file an incident report.
All SWOSU Campus Police incident reports are forwarded to the Dean of Students office for review and potential action by the Office of Student Judicial Services. Investigators will investigate a report when it is deemed appropriate. Additional information obtained via the investigation will also be forwarded to the Office of Student Affairs.
If assistance is required from the Weatherford Police Department, SWOSU Campus Police will contact the appropriate unit. If a sexual assault or rape should occur, staff on the scene, including SWOSU Campus Police, will offer the victim a wide variety of services.

Crimes should be reported to the SWOSU Campus Police to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate. For example, a crime that was reported only to the Rape Crisis Center would not be included in the SWOSU Campus Police crime statistics.
