CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAMS
The University's crime prevention program is based upon the dual concept of eliminating or minimizing opportunities for crime while encouraging students and employees to assume responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others by taking commonsense precautions. The following is a listing of of the University's crime prevention programs.
SECURITY ESCORT SERVICE
Campus Security provides transportation or a walking escort from dusk to dawn for anyone walking alone on campus at night. By calling 956-SAFE(7233), an escort can be summoned to your location. The escort will either transport you in a Campus Security vehicle or accompany you on foot to any University parking lot or facility.
Restrictions of this service
The escort service is NOT intended to be a taxi service and will NOT provide transportation for the following reasons: rides to places of employment, restaurants, drinking establishments, laundromats, airports, bus terminals, etc. It will not cover rides for large groups, especially those who are either intoxicated or who display disruptive behavior. No pets or animals allowed.
What if there is a problem getting assistance?
If you have questions or problems with delivery of the escort service, please bring your concerns to the attention of the on-duty Campus Security supervisor immediately by calling 956-8211 or use the "Blue Light" Emergency phone.
This service is available to all members of the University Community.
UHM Campus Security officers are also trained in emergency first-aid, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), and Automated External Defibrillators (AED's).
EMERGENCY CALL BOXES
There are 78 emergency call boxes located throughout the campus which connect the caller directly with the Campus Security dispatcher. These emergency call boxes are activated by picking up the handset. Campus Security can immediately identify the location of the caller even if the caller is unable to orally communicate with the dispatcher.
CRIME PREVENTION PRESENTATIONS
Presentations by Campus Security officers on various crime prevention topics are made annually to students living in the residence halls. Additional presentations are made to other students and employee organizations upon request. Information on safety and security is also provided to the campus community through crime alerts, posters, brochures, employee bulletins, and the student newspaper.
FACILITIES AND GROUNDS SURVEYS
All potential safety and security hazards observed by our officers on patrol are promptly reported to the appropriate maintenance department for corrective action on a timely basis. The Chief also participates in the review of safety issues and concerns in the design of new buildings.
The Campus Security Department also provides, upon request, special security services for visiting VIPs, special campus events, and the University President.
