Police Officer

UNCW police officers are primarily responsible for implementing a community policing model to advance the strategic goals and priorities of the University. Officers are required: to work closely with individuals and groups within the University community for the purpose of maintaining an atmosphere that supports quality campus life and reduces crime-related risks and vulnerabilities on the campus; to conduct high visibility of patrol of campus buildings, grounds, roadways, and parking facilities; to respond to calls for service; to enforce University policies and state laws; demonstrate excellent communication and decision making skills in the delivery of police services; to render services unrelated to enforcement, including, but not limited to building security and educational programming.

Police officers participate in the NC Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement Program for State Law Enforcement Officers and are vested after 5 years. Police officers qualify for federal and state law enforcement life insurance benefits. UNCW contributes 5% of salary to a personal 401(K) account. Officers may be eligible for a special two year salary continuation if injured on duty. After probation, employees are eligible to attend one UNCW academic class per semester at no cost. UNCW provides access to state of the art workout and exercise facilities and opportunity to enjoy UNCW sports events. The UNCW athletic teams participate in Division I of the NCAA.
