My name is Ron Trepkowski and I want to welcome you to the University Police website. The Saginaw Valley State University Police works in partnership with the entire university community to maintain a safe and secure campus. In addition to traditional police services, our department offers a wide variety of services, such as speaking to student groups and coordinating crime prevention efforts. We hope this webpage is useful in providing more detailed information on campus safety and the services we provide.
SVSU is a great place to live and work. Our officers are well educated and very motivated to keep SVSU a safe community. When you are on the south side of campus, stop by our office and say Hi. We are located on the east end of South Campus Complex A. Have a great day and GO CARDINALS!
