The University Police has jurisdiction over the 1,100-acre campus and its buildings. While officers are not specifically assigned to residence halls, those halls are part of regular campus patrols. Trained officers are available to respond and assist around the clock throughout the year.
The members of the University Police are committed to community policing and are actively involved in campus activities. The goal of the Community Relations Team is to educate the campus community on such topics as personal safety, risk awareness, crime prevention (including date and acquaintance rape prevention), drug and alcohol risk awareness, and many other community safety issues. They accomplish this mission through formal and informal talks, student and employee orientations, and the creation and distribution of pamphlets and posters across the campus. The Community Policing Office may be reached at (631) 632-7786.
The University Police can be reached from any campus phone by dialing 911. From off campus and cell phones, dial (631) 632-3333.
