Police Department


Investigations

The investigations unit is comprised of two University police officers who have been selected by the Chief of Police because of their basic investigative skills.  Once these members are selected, they are given additional training through a program that is supported by the local municipal police agency of the Hampton Police Division. The ranking member of the investigations unit assumes the additional role of unit supervisor.

Investigators are assigned cases that require detailed inquiry that is normally beyond the scope of the patrol officer, who is usually the person who has taken the initial crime report. Investigators are assigned all felony cases, such as robbery, grand larceny, burglary, forgery and uttering, felonious assault, sexual assault, and homicide. They are also assigned some of the more serious misdemeanors.

The goal of the unit is to vigorously pursue and prosecute all criminal offenders to the fullest extent of the law.

Incident Reports

Faculty, staff, students and visitors are encouraged to report criminal activity, suspected criminal activity, and all other emergencies directly to University Police. To report an incident, one can dial University Police at x5666 for emergencies or x5300 for non-emergencies. You can also press the button on the front of one of the nineteen call boxes located conspicuously around campus, and at any time, day or night, you may come directly to police headquarters located in the rear of Whipple Barn.

All emergency reports received by University Police will receive an immediate response. Priority responses will be given to crimes against persons and personal injuries.

To help canvas the entire Hampton University community, we also work closely with local, state, and federal agencies to investigate criminal activity.
