Special Message from the WWRC Director

As Director of WWRC, nothing is more important to me than to always lead our Center with safety as the highest priority of our operation.  A safe environment, coupled with a diligent concern for the personal safety of everyone who works and resides on campus, is the fundamental building block of everything we do here at WWRC. Having been personally affiliated with WWRC for more than two decades, I have great confidence in both our staff’s ability to perform these tasks and their commitment to our clients. Our Police Department is a vital operation and provides a consistent security presence on our campus.  Our Police Officers continually strive for the safest possible environment for our clients, guests and staff.  I trust you will find the Police Department web page to be informative and useful in pursuing your interests with our Center.   Richard L.
