The West Virginia University Department of Public Safety is asking members of the campus community to be alert for suspicious activity and report any theft or suspected crime immediately as police investigate a series of LCD projector thefts.


DPS would also like to inform all University employees about free engraving of office equipment and personal property as a part of the WVU “Operation Identification”program. The”Operation ID”engraving program helps to deter theft, and this free service can be scheduled by calling the University Police.
