What We Do

Year round, the Division of Safety and Security manages the safety and security programs that serve the GW community of over 25,000 students and 11,000 staff and faculty.

  • Implement solutions to address the safety and security needs of the university community
  • Establish safety and security priorities
  • Develop safety and security plans
