    On the plus side, the school gives them free tuition. But agreed, I wouldn't want to work for a police department that didn't let me carry.

    Anyone who would work as a uniformed police officer without carrying is an idiot. I carry every where I go whether its on vacation on the other side of the country or to the grocery store down the street. Anybody who would work for this department needs their head examined asap. They have a death wish.

    I actually like those better. Still ugly but better looking then the ones on the main campus.
    Sorry I should have been more specific....the main campus and the law school are completely independent departments...the MAIN campus has no reds!

    Georgetown University Law School Dept of Public Safety has red and blue on white cruisers.

    Georgetown University Dept of Public Safety has all blue lights on blue cruisers with white tops.

    The two departments are separate due to the Dean of the Law School being a very powerful person and not liking the old Director of the Dept of Public Safety (William Tucker); so the university allowed her to have her own separate police force for her campus.

    If they do, that would make them emergency vehicles... But Howard, AU, GW, Catholic, etc. just have blues and aren't EVs.

DPW is the city agency that designates EV status and since none of the university police have reds I believe that means they haven't gone through that process.

    Case in point. GWU Police - EMS Division (EMeRG) has fully equipped emergency vehicles (red lights and sirens) which operate on city streets of the District of Columbia.

    Georgetown University EMS (GERMS) has fully equipped emergency vehicles (red lights and sirens) which operate on city streets of the District of Columbia.

    Like I said, there is nothing in the DC Code which says universities can't have emergency vehicles. That is a myth.

    To follow-up on the others' comments--to be an emergency vehicle in DC you have to have red lights. Blue signifies priority but doesn't give emergency status. Whenever a university police car is driving on public roads (outside their jurisdiction) they're not technically supposed to use lights/sirens at all and can't be an emergency vehicle.

    HOW, but like someone said prior they dont carry so guess it makes sense. Its like USC Public Safety out here in CA. They go through a full police acedemy 22wks but they dont have police powers. They still have to get a guard card and all the permits. Their cars have amber lights and all. Then the other odd agency out here are the police officers for the CA Dept Of Mental Health. They are fully marked officers, patches and units all say police and have emeregency lights but they dont carry side arms at all. Doesnt make any sense out here either. Guess every area has that one odd PD.
