Mason Police would like to extend condolences to the Stanley Police Department, as well as to the family and friends of Officer Dominic Winum, who was killed in the line of duty on Friday.

We also remember Prince William County Police Department Officer Ashely Guindon who was killed in the line of duty in her first day of training, on her first call 5 years ago today.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those involved in both tragedies during this difficult time.

General information

Members of the GMU Police Force are state certified police officers empowered to enforce all state and local laws on all George Mason campuses, with the authority to make arrests and carry fi****ms. They are trained in emergency first aid, criminal law, criminal investigation, defensive tactics, crime prevention, use of fi****ms, sexual assault victim counseling, crisis intervention, crowd control, and enforcement of traffic regulations. A comprehensive background investigation is completed on all police personnel. University Police maintains a close working relationship with the Virginia State Police and the police departments of the City of Fairfax, Arlington, Fairfax, and Prince William County. As a participant in the National Crime Information Center and the Virginia Crime Information Network, University Police shares information with other police agencies nationwide. Through its membership in a wide network of other regional, state, and international law enforcement organizations, it can exchange information used in investigating crimes and learn new crime prevention techniques. Each month, University Police activities and intelligence data are reported to the Virginia State Police for inclusion in crime statistics published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Available 24 hours a day year-round, University Police officers are responsible for maintaining order and public safety. University Police officers regularly patrol the streets, parking lots, and grounds of the campus. In addition to motor and foot patrols, officers from the Community Outreach Patrol use bicycles to monitor the grounds, particularly those areas not readily accessible by patrol car. The bicycle patrol enhances communication between officers and persons on campus and enhances response time. The Geroge Mason University Police Department also offers a Police Cadet Program. GMU Police Cadets are non-sworn student wage employees without the powers of arrest. They work alongside GMU Police Officers and are committed to providing the highest level of safety, security, and service to all members of the George Mason University community, their visitors and guests. For more information, please visit the Police Cadet page and website. http://www.gmu.edu/depts/police/cadets.htm
