Police Department Staff

Welcome to the The W Police Department!

Chief Danny PattonOn behalf of our faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Mississippi University for Women. I want to thank you for your interest in our Annual Security and Fire Report. We publish this report because it contains valuable information on our campus community.  Mississippi University for Women (The W) works to maintain a safe and secure campus and to protect your property by providing full police and environmental safety services through the Police Department. We also share information you can use to reduce your chances of becoming a crime or accident victim. An informed community is a safer community.

Each year, The W publishes the Annual Security and Fire Report which includes crime statistics and the fire safety report. This report also outlines The W security policies and procedures. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this report in order to become an informed member of our community and contribute to the University’s effort to create and maintain a safe environment.

The W Police Department is committed to making our campus a safe place in which to live, work, and study.
