UNIVERSITY POLICE AUTHORITY AND JURISDICTION
The UNCSA Police Department employs 14 professionally trained police officers that meet the standards set forth by the Criminal Justice and Standards Division of the State of North Carolina under General Statute 17C. These officers have the authority to enforce federal, state and local laws, as well as the rules and regulations of the University of North Carolina. Our police jurisdiction includes all UNCSA owned or leased property, that portion of any public road passing through the campus, and that portion of any public road immediately adjoining the campus (Cf. General Statute 116-40.5).
The UNCSA Police Department has a mutual aid agreement with the City of Winston-Salem that extends our jurisdiction throughout the city when working in response to a request for assistance from them. UNCSA Police work closely with local, state, and federal agencies and may enter into a joint investigation, as deemed necessary to provide safety and security for the community.
