      The only University PD's that have fully equipped emergency vehicles that are authorized to operate on public roadways are the University of the District of Columbia and The George Washington University Police Department.

      The other universities have blue lights (not emergency lights in DC) and may have red; but they are not registered with the DC DMV as Emergency Vehicles and are therefore not authorized to operate as Emergency Vehicles on public roadways (their campus roadways would be fine).

    Thanks.

    I knew the colleges did; but I thought they were a different certification? Or is that just that they have their own SPO academy?

      University PD's are appointed under DCMR 6A Chapter 12; which is different from security company SPO's appointed under DCMR 6A Chapter 11.

      Additionally; the University PD's can make and process their own arrests in Cobalt (the arrest processing system in DC) like a member of any of the public police forces.

      A security company SPO can only be W1 in the arrest paperwork; cant be the "arresting officer" and can't actually process the arrest; MPD or another public police agency must process the arrest for them in Cobalt.

      The only University PD's that have fully equipped emergency vehicles that are authorized to operate on public roadways are the University of the District of Columbia and The George Washington University Police Department.

    In the District of Columbia; blue lights ARE NOT emergency lights... only RED area.

    The Security Company SPO vehicles are completely unregulated from the DCMR that regulates Security Companies.

    Emergency Vehicles are regulated under the DMV's section of the DCMR and limits emergency vehicles to:
    • Any government agency
    • Any police force
    • Any ambulance / EMS agency
    • Any fire department
    • Any public health entity
    The only University PD's that have fully equipped emergency vehicles that are authorized to operate on public roadways are the University of the District of Columbia and The George Washington University Police Department.
