Burning questions that you have always wanted to ask a police officer? We are open to sharing and helping people understand more about what our officers do and experience on a daily basis. Invite us to a group setting or schedule some time for a 1:1 conversation!
Self-defense requires much more than physical training. Our officers can help prepare community members for the mental conditioning and overall awareness required for a self-defense mindset.
Our Emergency Response Team is a small group of highly-trained officers who respond to critical incidents on campus. Interested in learning more? This educational experience can be a presentation or an interactive opportunity to see some of the team's equipment.
Are you ready to take your self-defense mindset to the next level? The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D. for Women) and Resisting Agression with Defense (R.A.D. for Men) are free classes taught by VTPD. These courses begin with awareness, prevention, risk reduction/avoidance and progress to the basics of hands-on defense training. Our instructors make learning self-defense tactics both fun and empowering!
Whether traveling by car, bicycle, scooter or foot, community members should always prioritize traveling safely. Request an opportunity to learn more about traffic and/or pedestrian safety!
Whether on computers, phones, or other devices, more and more of the world operates and relies on technology. As convenient as that is, it also makes us vulnerable to potential cybercrime. Learn more about how to protect yourself and others in the digital realm!
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a multidisciplinary approach to risk reduction and community building in order to promote crime prevention and facilitate a safer, more secure environment. Learn more about these strategies and how you can apply them in your community, office or home!
Interested in having one or more of our officers join a class or a club meeting as a guest? We'd love to! From talking about the law enforcement field to feeding our fowl friends at the Duck Pond, we love engaging our community members!
Not sure how to respond to different types of acts of violence, severe weather or other emergencies? We can help! Be prepared for different situations and learn how to respond while on campus and beyond.
