Kevin J. Smith

Safety & Security Administrator
Crime is everyone’s problem, not just the Campus Police or other local police agencies. We as a community should work together to eliminate crime and make our campus a safe and secure living and learning environment.
The Wilberforce University Division of Police is a full-service police and security agency that takes a proactive approach in progressive campus community policing. The Police Department is located on the ground floor of the Wolfe Building and is working diligently to develop partnerships with the Wilberforce campus community as well as the Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Central State University Police, Xenia Division of Police, and other local law enforcement and emergency service providers. By working together, we can keep the Wilberforce community a safe place to live and learn.
I am asking for your assistance and cooperation of every member of our community to do your part of maintaining a safe and secure quality of life for the Wilberforce Community. We look forward to getting to know each of you.
Please do not hesitate to stop by the office or call us if you are in need. 1-937-708-5780 or 911 if an emergency.
