Chief Danny PattonWelcome to the MUW Police Department!

The Mississippi University for Women Police Department is comprised of Police Officers fully certified by the State of Mississippi. We continually train and keep abreast of changes in the laws and any trends that could impact safety on this campus.

This department is a professional Police force dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service to all members of the MUW community and we strive to make this campus a safe environment in which to live, learn, and work.

Our biggest strength is the partnerships we maintain with all of the many groups and organizations that make up the MUW Community and we are a department dedicated to the principles of community policing.

We work diligently to provide the highest level of safety and security to students, faculty, staff, and all others that visit our campus and we encourage feedback and suggestions on ways to improve in those efforts.

I welcome you to stop by and visit this fine campus and to please feel free to contact me or any member of this department with any question or inquiry that you may have.

We are located in McDevitt Hall and we may be contacted at 662.241.7777 for information or requests for service. It is our pleasure to serve and our duty to protect.
