What if I lock my keys in my car or need a jump start?
As a courtesy, the police department provides services on campus or in campus housing if you require a jump start or you lock your keys in your car. Please be sure to give the dispatcher or officer a phone number so he/she can notify you in case there is a request or emergency in progress that might delay the response.

What if I want an escort?
The police department provides complimentary escorts 24 hours a day year-round. Escorts are provided by a staff member of the police department by foot or vehicle from one point on campus to another. The purpose of the escort is to ensure safety for all. Even though escorts are a priority, be sure to give the dispatcher or officer a phone number so he/she can notify you in case there is a request or emergency in progress that might delay the response.
