The Building Watch Program was replaced with Sector Patrol in September 2009. Patrolling by sector is one piece of our community policing strategy.
Each patrol officer "owns" a sector. The officer works in collaboration with area building coordinators and other stakeholders to address the problems and crimes unique to that sector.
Ownership of a patrol sector means that officers treat their area as if they owned it. They become the caretakers of this property and the people in it. Ownership means taking the initiative to improve a situation, and ultimately, to improve the quality of life in that part of our university.
The two patrol lieutenants each have two sectors that they oversee, and each of the four patrol sergeants is in charge of one sector. The sergeants coordinate and monitor the activity occurring in the sector they supervise. They advise on the implementation of strategies to address problems and crimes that occur in their area. They provide briefings to senior leadership and the command staff on the occurrences in their sector and must demonstrate that their sector officers are taking action that is producing real results.
Sector One includes upper main campus and the Greek System.
Sector Two includes lower main campus.
Sector Three includes the area of west campus from 15th Avenue NE to Roosevelt Way NE and from NE 45th Street to NE Boat Street.
Sector Four includes the areas of south and east campus, including the UW housing complexes of Blakeley Village, Laurel Village and Nordheim Court.
