About Us

A Message From the Director of University Police

Welcome to Lander University Police Department’s website. Through this site you will be able to learn about our mission, our staff, and the many services that we provide to the University community of Lander. You will also find important information about campus safety and crime statistic information compiled by our department.

Lander University is a community of more than 3,500 on a beautiful historic campus in Greenwood, South Carolina. Living and working in a tranquil environment such as Lander sometimes causes us to forget that crime and other problems can plague us, just as they do other communities.

The University Police Department works with the community to create a reasonably safe campus. Crime prevention, risk identification, and problem solving are the responsibilities of everyone. We ask you to join us in these efforts by referring to our web-site for safety and security information.

The University Police Department is the primary Department at the University charged with creating a safe and secure environment. This task, however, is not one we can accomplish alone. Information and awareness are important components of Crime Prevention and Safety. Communication is critical while striving to create this Partnership. Your cooperation in reporting crimes or suspicious activities will enhance our effort to provide a safe education environment.
