Campus Police and Security


The mission of the Shaw University Campus Police and Security Department is to promote and maintain personal safety and physical and environmental security. The department's commitment to support the academic mission includes preventive measures through education and enforcement, which promotes awareness and individual responsibility in an effort to maintain a safe and secure environment. We are committed to working with the community to define our priorites and build lasting relationships.


The Shaw University Campus Polices Department seeks to inform members of the Shaw community of common protocols and procedures as it pertains to non-criminal activity and criminal investigations on campus.

Law Enforcement Authority

Campus police officers have full police authority on College property under the provisions of Paragraph 74E of the General Statutes of the State of North Carolina. Police commissions are granted under that statute by the Attorney General of North Carolina, including the power to make arrests for felonies and misdemeanors within the agency’s jurisdiction. The Campus Police maintain a close working relationship with the Raleigh Police Department both through informal meetings and formal agreements between the departments.

Weapons Policy

The possession, use, or sale of firearms and ammunition, knives of any kind, fireworks, major and minor explosives or any illegal weapon is forbidden and subject to University disciplinary actions as well as criminal sanctions as pursuant to the general statute(s) of North Carolina.
