Emergency Call Boxes
Several hundred call boxes are strategically placed around campus to connect you directly to a USCPD dispatcher in case of an incident or emergency.
Operating an Emergency Call Box
Push the red button. You will immediately be connected with a USCPD dispatcher. Even if you are unable to communicate, the dispatcher will know your exact location. If you are being chased and cannot stop, press the call boxes as you pass and police officers will respond to the area.
When You Should Use an Emergency Call Box
Call boxes should be used to report crimes in progress, fires, medical emergencies or threats to personal safety.
Identifying Call Boxes
Look for the boxes' bright blue lights. Note the location of boxes in the areas you frequent on campus.
