Chief's Corner- Care Team

UNT prides itself on being a close-knit community that cares about each other. Here at the UNT Police Department, we work with partners across campus to provide support for our entire community.

For this reason, resources like the CARE Team are in place to offer support if you have a student whose behavior is disruptive to themselves or the environment. Faculty and staff can also find support for their peers through an employee CARE Team.

The mission of the CARE Team is to assist in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the students and members of the UNT community and provide comprehensive response to those in need.

The CARE Team consists of a network of professionals from across campus that are committed to a caring, confidential program of identification, intervention and response to provide our community members with the greatest chance of success and protection.

To refer a student to the CARE Team, you can file an online report at report.unt.edu. If you have concerns about a faculty or staff member you can email careteam@unt.edu or leave a voicemail at 940-565-4373.

If someone’s behavior places them, you, or anyone else in immediate danger please reach out to police. In Denton, you can dial or text 911 to connect with our department. Remember to trust your instincts if you feel a situation is dangerous or could escalate.

I encourage you to learn more about the CARE Team by visiting their website at https://studentaffairs.unt.edu/care. You can also learn more about us at www.police.unt.edu and follow us on Facebook or Twitter (@UNTPolice).
