Public Safety Assistants
WWU Police Department and Parking Services employ student security and parking enforcement, who are Public Safety Assistants (PSAs), but may also be referred to as “Green Coats”. The PSAs work under two divisions, Parking Enforcement and Police.
The Parking Enforcement PSAs assist the Parking Enforcement Officers with lot checks, writing citations and event staffing. They work a variety of hours based on the needs of the Parking Department.
The Police PSAs work in conjunction with the Police Officers. Their primary responsibilities are foot patrol in the areas of the dormitories and roving patrols on the entire campus. They also provide safety escorts, admits, lock/unlock the buildings and security at special events.
