The Wake Forest University Police Department is hosting an open house Feb. 1 at Alumni Hall, where it recently moved its administrative offices from the H.S. Moore Building.
The police department is inviting students, faculty and staff to Alumni Hall to help the department celebrate having its first new home since the 1980s. An open house will be held from 2 to 4 p.m.
Visitors, including off-campus community partners, will be taken on guided tours following brief opening remarks by various speakers and a ribbon cutting formally opening the department’s new offices. Light refreshments will be served.
Speakers include President Nathan O. Hatch and Vice President for Campus Life Penny Rue.
During the winter break, the police department moved into Alumni Hall, where University Advancement and Parking and Transportation are also located.
The police department moved into the area of Alumni Hall formerly occupied by Residence Life and Housing and the Deacon OneCard office, which moved into the newly-built Maya Angelou Residence Hall.
“All of us in the University Police Department hope to see many of our campus community members and off-campus community partners at our open house,” University Police Chief Regina Lawson said. “As chief, I would like to see our students, faculty, staff and others become familiar with our new home and more familiar with all of us who are committed to serving Wake Forest.”
The police department’s business offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. People can call the department 24/7 on its emergency line, 336-758-5911, or its business line, 336-758-5591.
At present, the police department’s communication center remains in Davis Residence Hall. It is open to receive visitors 24/7. The center will move into Alumni Hall this spring.
