University Police remind campus community members to please take the following actions to help ensure their own safety especially at night and on weekends:

  • Remain vigilant of your surroundings.
  • Pre-program the number for University Police in your cell phone for use in an emergency: (702) 895-3669. Remember: when you dial 9-1-1 from a non-campus phone you are calling the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and their officers will take longer to arrive to help you than University Police. You can also download UNLV’s RebelSAFE mobile safety app. The app contains a function that allows you to directly call the UNLV Police Department Emergency Communications Center on your smartphone without first contacting Las Vegas Metro Dispatch. The app can be downloaded by visiting iTunes, the Google Play Store, or visiting the department’s RebelSAFE page.
  • Campus security escorts are available by calling UNLV Police Services 24 hours a day at (702) 895-3668.
