Indiana Wesleyan University Campus Police update uniforms & logo

Indiana Wesleyan University’s Campus Police updated their look over the summer and now sport a new uniform & a new logo.

The new uniforms include brown pants and red polo shirts with the IWU Campus Police logo and the officer’s last name embroidered on the front. The sleeves and back feature reflective ‘POLICE’ lettering to further identify the offers on duty and enhance visibility at night. Formerly, IWU Campus Police officers wore the same uniforms as the Grant County Sherriff’s Department.

"The uniform change was about continuing a long standing relationship with the Sheriff's Department, while creating our own identity and brand as IWU Campus Police," said Director of Campus Police and Emergency management Chad Beights. 

Later this month, the department plans to replace its Chevrolet Impala squad car with a black
Dodge Charger.

“When students and their parents look at colleges, safety is usually one of the top concerns,” said
Beights. “In order to provide a campus that is safe, yet not overbearing, we seek to provide a
balance of policing and education for the campus community.”

IWU is a security-minded university and is privileged to have its own police department registered
with the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. The overall goal of the Campus Police department is
to provide a safe and secure campus for students, staff and visitors. In addition to working part
time for Campus Police, all officers serve as full-time deputies with the Grant County Sheriff's
Department, have graduated from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, and undergo continual
training and updating through the sheriff's office.
