Girls on Guard Self-Defense Classes
Police Services offers self-defense classes in order to provide women with the basic skills to escape an attacker and teach them how to avoid dangerous situations whenever possible. These classes are intended to help women feel safer and better prepared on campus. Police Services' Girls on Guard self-defense classes are open to all female students, faculty, staff, and community members. Registration for Girls on Guard classes may only be done through links that are sent out via RAVE (Rebel Mail), UNLV Today, on the UNLV Event Calendar, on our Facebook and pages, and on the Police Services Events Calendar on our website. If you have any questions regarding the training, contact Sergeant Denise Lutey at email@example.com for further details.

Report Suspicious or Criminal Activity On Campus
To report suspicious or criminal activity or other emergencies, dial 911 from a campus landline or 702-895-3669 from your cellphone. There are also emergency telephones located throughout the Maryland Parkway, Paradise, and Shadow Lane campuses that connect you directly to the UNLV Police Dispatch Center. These telephones automatically register your location when you push the button to activate the phone. Please refer to the campus maps page for a list of maps which show emergency call box locations via a blue telephone icon.
Possession and Use of Weapons
All university police officers carry service weapons while on duty. By Nevada Revised Statute 202.265, only police department personnel may carry or possess firearms or any other weapons on campus.
Residence Hall Security
Access to residence halls is controlled by card-activated access systems that restrict entrance to only those authorized to enter. Additionally, each residence hall is staffed with a resident coordinator and numerous resident assistants, usually one per floor.
