Chief's Corner

 With the start of a new semester I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the roles each of us plays in making UNT one of the safest campuses in the country. Upholding public safety is the mission of our department but it takes community effort to keep our university safe. Proactive measures solve issues before they escalate. Partnerships and collaboration keep our community united. 

One way you can help us keep the campus safe is to call us when your instincts alert you to suspicious behavior or actions. This is more than seeing an unfamiliar person on campus – it means seeing a person act in a way that raises a red flag or causes concern. If the behavior or action needs to be addressed immediately, call 911. For an issue that may need to be talked through, we are available at our non-emergency number at 940-565-3000.

Our department offers public safety awareness training to help you or your group learn more about proactive actions you can take. Find the topics we teach on the police department’s website. You can also contact Community Relations Officer, David Causey, at david.causey@unt.edu or 940-369-7691. By following us on Twitter and Facebook you’ll also get proactive tips and learn about programs we offer.
