Swat Support


Bellingham Police Department provides two positions for WWU Police officers on the SWAT team. WWU officers work in full participating roles with BPD SWAT, and provide superior expertise and an added effectiveness with response, in the event of a campus emergency. BPD and WWU officers train and work in full cooperation, giving the SWAT team more access to the campus for training and geographical exposure. This level of collaboration provides the WWU campus and greater city of Bellingham community with a higher level of proficiency in high risk police situations.
