The Missouri Western State University Police Department is a state licensed law enforcement agency. We are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide around-the-clock security for our students. We also offer several services on campus. We conduct campus-wide active-shooter training, and present to all incoming freshmen. We also train on drug and alcohol abuse. We are also available to train on several topics by request including sexual assault and domestic violence.
On top of performing law enforcement activities we can jump-start and unlock cars, and provide courtesy rides to students who feel that they need a safe escort while on campus. The Police Department also administers Griffon Alert, Missouri Western’s emergency notification system. See the news item below on how to register for emergency notifications.

The Police Department is very proactive and encourages interaction with the student body. We have an open door policy and encourage drop-in visits. We are located in Blum Union 201 and our phone number is (816) 271-4438. You can visit our website at
