The University Police Department recognizes the importance of maintaining close and cooperative working relationships with the City of Kansas City Kansas Police Department, the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Department, and the Unified Government District Attorney's Office. The University Police Department meets with these departments on a formal and an informal basis and on specific issues as the need arises. It also conducts joint training exercises with these departments on a regular basis.
All of these law enforcement departments share a computer aided dispatching system and other information systems to track offender criminal histories and arrest information, and they share crime trend information as well. The University Police Department has direct lines of communication with these other departments, which allow for fast, efficient coordination when necessary. The University Police Department also works with other state and federal law enforcement agencies as required.
