The Campus Police Department works in cooperation with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, maintaining 24-hour radio access to the Kansas City Kansas Police Department.
Four emergency telephones have been strategically placed around the campus and are monitored 24 hours a day by the Campus Police Department. When activated, a bright blue strobe light illuminates the area to alert others to the possibility of an emergency. By pressing a button, the caller can be in touch with the Campus Police instantly.
Any reported crimes on campus are investigated by the Campus Police. The passage of the Campus Security and Crime Awareness Act in 1990 requires that all colleges and universities that receive federal financial aid must publish crime statistics. A brochure is available in the Campus Police Office. The Act mandates that crime information be made available to the students and the media in a timely manner.
Students are reminded that the possession, use, or sale of alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs on campus is strictly forbidden. Other than certified police officers, no one may bring guns or other weapons on campus.
