REPORTING CRIMES
AND
EMERGENCIES

University Police Operations
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs maintains a full-service Police Department to respond to reports of criminal acts and emergencies on campus. These officers are state certified and hold police commissions with the State of Colorado.

You can report crimes to the University Police Department by calling 3-1-1-1 (3-0-5-0 TDD) from a campus phone or 255-3111 from a cell phone. For life threatening emergencies, call 9-9-1-1.

Police Response
All students, faculty, staff and visitors at UCCS are encouraged to report all crimes and public safety related incidents to the UCCS Department of Public Safety in a timely manner. UCCS police also depend on individuals in the community to assist them in crime prevention by reporting suspicious activities

The University Police respond to all reports of crimes and suspicious activities that occur on campus and other properties owned, operated or under the control of the University of Colorado. University Police are generally the first to respond to any emergency or call for service. The City of Colorado Springs Police respond to crimes reported elsewhere in the city. However, the University Police Department and the City of Colorado Springs police have a close working relationship and may coordinate their responses to crimes as appropriate.

The University Police communications center relays reports of crimes and calls for service via radio to uniformed officers in the field. University police officers patrol campus by car, bicycle and on foot. Officers are authorized to carry firearms and are trained in laws concerning the use of force.

Officers respond to crime reports as appropriate using state and municipal laws as guidelines. These officers decide to detain, arrest, or merely warn offenders based on established standards of criminal or constitutional law. University Police officers write reports on all law violations; administration uses the reports to compile daily, monthly, and yearly statistics for the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. University Police officers also review reports of old or "cold" crimes.

University Police coordinate with the District Attorney's Office for the filing of criminal charges. Cases involving students are also referred to the Dean of Students Office or the Office of Residence Life and Housing, as appropriate for review and possible sanctions. University Police crime reports containing information that may affect the security of other University units are routed to appropriate administrators.

All student organizations leasing or using off campus space must report to the University Administration any criminal activity that occurs off campus. A copy of those reports involving criminal activity must be filed with the University Police for inclusion in the Campus Safety and Security Report.
