Our department subscribes to the community policing philosophy, which guides our efforts in our interactions with the UNLV community and the Las Vegas community in order to identify and solve problems.
UNLV is home to approximately 2,000 on-campus residents. To strengthen the ties and build a partnership with the residential life faculty, staff, and residents, we have initiated the Dormitory Liaison Program, which assigns police officers to work closely with the university's residential life staff to identify and solve problems that affect the residential life community. The dormitory liaison officers often attend floor meetings, hold and conduct training sessions, and also attend residential life events throughout the semester.
The Police Blotter Newsletter
Police Services has always prided itself on maintaining a strong relationship with the campus community, and in the fall of 2004, we launched The Police Blotter to stay better connected with the community. It is our hope that this newsletter will foster discussion among students, faculty, and staff regarding UNLV's Department of Police Services and will keep you well informed of our activities and pertinent information regarding campus safety and crime prevention.
