Confidential Hotline 3838
The Department of Public Safety operates a confidential hotline at extension 3838. The purpose of this hotline is to provide a convenient and secure way for students, staff and faculty to report suspicious activities or events on campus 24 hours a day. Messages are checked regularly by department administrators.
University parking lots are equipped with emergency telephones that will automatically ring to the Department of Public Safety Dispatch Center 24 hours a day. The exterior emergency telephones are either yellow or gray in color with a red placard affixed to the outside. Simply push and release the emergency button to activate a two-way emergency response call to Public Safety, and speak clearly into the microphone. You may also use any of the red emergency house phones located inside the Warde Academic and Shannon Centers. These phones may be used for reporting any crime, an emergency, a suspicious situation, or to report an injury or any unsafe condition.
