George Mason was established as a four-year university in 1972 when the governor signed legislation separating it from the University of Virginia. In 1981 the George Mason University’s 21 person security department was reorganized and formed an autonomous law enforcement agency Today, the George Mason University Police Department has grown to a force of over fifty sworn officers which patrols three campuses. The department is a full service law enforcement agency which has maintained its nationally accredited status since 1991.

Mission: The mission of the George Mason University Police Department is to provide a safe and secure environment for all university employees, students and guests. Embracing the principles of community policing, the department will work collaboratively with academic and administrative units, individuals and organizations in furtherance of the mission of the university.

Thank you Patriots!

Based on the numerous tips and assistance that Mason Police received from the Mason Community, we were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Sean Tyree based on his violation of the existing order barring him from GMU property.

The tips also enabled us to take him into custody this afternoon in a joint effort with the Fairfax County Police. An investigation into his activities continues.

Great work Mason Nation.

Dear Patriots,

A number of female students on the Fairfax Campus have recently reported being approached by a male subject who portrayed himself as a Mason student and solicited phone numbers and invited the students back to his nearby residence. Mason Police suspect that the male subject is Sean James Tyree, who is not a Mason student and is known to the Mason Police. Mason students should avoid any interactions with this individual. Mason Police are investigating the reports of these interactions and in contact with other law enforcement agencies who are providing assistance. This is a link to his picture and description, which contains the limited information Mason Police are permitted by law to disclose in this message.

Sometimes that traffic stop will come with some great roadside service, too. Our night shift patrol officers have been very busy this week keeping our roads safer assisting motorists, investigating crashes, and staying vigilant for impaired and dangerous drivers. Officer Grant always has a watchful eye on traffic safety, helping this motorist before a long commute home.

For "National Dog Day" we would be remiss if we didn't highlight the hard work of our four-legged team members. K9 Titan and Sergeant O'Hare are one of our EOD K9 teams who specialize in explosive detection. The campus may have been empty this summer, but this team never stops learning and training. However, they are certainly happy to welcome everyone back for a safe return to school this week!

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 firearms. They are trained in emergency first aid, criminal law, criminal investigation, defensive tactics, crime prevention, use of firearms, 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
