The University of Nevada, Las Vegas Department of Police Services is dedicated to providing excellence in protection and service to the university community. As law enforcement officers, we shall continuously endeavor to ensure a safe and secure environment conducive to a positive social and educational process.
The vision of the UNLV Department of Police Services is to become an exemplary model and recognized leader in higher education law enforcement by providing the public with quality police service and protection.
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.
Social Media Outreach
Police Services launched its Facebook page and Twitter page to better connect with the campus community. Follow both pages for exclusive department news and notification of our community outreach events. Our social media accounts provide yet another tool in an ever-growing array of resources to notify students, faculty, and staff in the event of an on-campus emergency.
