Lieutenant Jeff Wright poses in front of trees near the Police Station

Jeff Wright


“Ever since I started with UPD in 2008, I have always felt like I was part of an extended family. Everyone truly looks out for one another and is willing to help each other however they can. I also have always enjoyed working with the WVU community. I have met and made connections with many great people. I have always wanted to help people and help to make a difference in the community. The WVU Police Department provided me with that opportunity.”

Originally from Blacksville, Jeff has served our campus community since November 2008 and currently works with our Investigation team. Through his role as a police officer, he enjoys the sense of community he finds within the department and throughout the University.

Outside of his job, Jeff can be found spending time with his family. His many hobbies include hunting, fishing, farming, attending church and reading comic books. Jeff loves traveling as well – he once traveled Ireland from coast to coast!
