August 18, 2020

Over the summer, IT and the University Police upgraded the technology in all emergency phone towers across campus. Each of these tower phones are now programmed to dial 9-1-1 and begin the delivery of critical public safety services, including police, fire, and emergency medical services whenever you call.

The use of these phone towers is intended for emergencies—not as a means to speak with an officer in an non-emergency situation. To speak with an on-duty officer, call the main University Police number at 863-874-8472.
