South traffic entrance of UNLV Gateway Garage (Police Services is located on the ground floor).

Mar. 8, 2019

The day has finally come!  University Police Services is moving into its new building in the University Gateway Parking Garage.  The move is scheduled to take place from Friday, March 15th through Monday, March 18th.  University Police Services knows you have questions about the move, and we have answers.  Check out our Q & A below.

  • Will patrols and dispatch communications be impacted?  No, patrol operations will continue without interruption.  Student security evening escort services will not be impacted by this move.
  • Will the RebelSAFE Alert System be impacted?  No, the system will continue running through the move.  Staff will be able to activate the system if any campus emergency should occur.
  • Will business office operating hours be impacted?  All business offices at Police Services will be fully operational until Friday, March 15th at 3:00 p.m.  At that time, the office computers and telephones will be disconnected in preparation for the move.  All computers and telephones for these offices are expected to be up and functional on Monday, March 18th at 8:00 a.m.  Again, none of these systems will impact 9-1-1 response or police dispatch communications.
  • Will any police services to the campus be impacted?  It is possible that the move will impact the delivery of some police services during the week of spring break as staff settle into their new offices and bring available services back online.  Every effort will be made to maintain police services to the community.  Services such as police report copies, fingerprinting, notary services, and online property registration are not expected to be impacted.  Lost and found property services and access to properties located in the department's evidence vaults will still be available; however, there may be some delays due to the fact that the contents of the property vault will not move into the new UNLV Gateway building until later in April.  Community members needing access to property are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Police Records to set-up an appointment in advance and provide a 24-hour window for the acquisition of property.  If there is an urgent need to recover property more quickly please contact James Morrow at (702) 895-5739 for assistance.
