Deadly Weapons Policy & Procedure


To implement and enforce the University’s Deadly Weapons/Destructive Devices Policy (WVU-PS&TS –3) and comply with State Code. Our goal is to reduce the risks associated with weapons and destructive devices in the workplace.


The University has prohibited the possession or storage of deadly weapons, destructive devices or fireworks in any form on our property or in leased facilities; therefore, we enforce the codes of the state as contained in Chapter 61, Section 7. We will enforce these codes in a manner that will inform the public and prevent such weapons and devices from appearing on our campus.


Exceptions are listed in the above listed policy. It shall be the responsibility of each sworn Police Officer to implement this policy.


Should be directed to the attention of the WVUPD at 293-COPS.
