WWU Police Department works with the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission, in targeted patrols. Targeted patrols employ officers from many agencies to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency in high risk areas of the community. The patrols can then focus on areas of increased concern to our students and the greater Whatcom County community. Many of these patrols in the past have been for speed, seatbelts, cell phones and intoxicated drivers. These emphasis patrol use targeted areas, so you may see WWU Police vehicles all over the county enforcing traffic laws.
