As sworn officers, EMU police are empowered to investigate, arrest or take other necessary action to address any criminal or other public infraction in the vicinity of the EMU campus, which includes the city of Ypsilanti and Washtenaw County. EMU officers work very closely with all area agencies, including the Ypsilanti City Police Department, the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department and the Michigan State Police.
The functions of the EMU Police Department include field operations and investigations. Field services are provided 24 hours a day, every day. Police officers patrol by car and bicycle and on foot to maintain high profile, proactive and preventive public safety services. Those services include responding to emergency calls, investigating crimes, enforcing criminal and vehicle codes, investigating traffic collisions, community policing, and managing security and safety for the many special events that occur on campus.
The Office of Criminal Investigations is staffed by two full-time detectives who handle the investigation of criminal offenses reported to the University Police. The detectives interview witnesses, victims and suspects. They collect physical and other material evidence, gather information and reports from other agencies, such as crime labs or other police departments, and prepare criminal cases for prosecution in court.
Our police force is very responsive and eager to help you. Please stop by headquarters any time if you wish to speak with an officer.
