The UAPD Crime Prevention Office has adopted the concept of Community Policing by establishing UAPD News as one of its tools to combat crime on campus. UAPD News is modeled after the Neighborhood Watch program. The concept of community watch programs is to encourage its members to take an active role in safety and security. UAPD News is designed to educate community members through presentations on issues of safety and security, offering security surveys, recommending changes or additions to buildings that would make the work place safer, providing statistics and crime trend information and insuring timely distributions of campus alerts. UAPD News is a formal network of communication for the community. In creating this network, UAPD News hopes to encourage all UA departments to exchange information and share their concerns with one another, in turn, creating a greater sense of personal ownership in campus safety and security. The police department, through UAPD News, can assure the university campus community that reporting suspicious persons and suspicious activities greatly influences the success of any crime prevention program and ultimately the safety of its own community members.
UAPD News will naturally develop to meet the needs of the community and we welcome your input. If you have any questions about the program please contact us via e-mail, phone or visit our office located on the University of Arizona campus. Also, please see the 2014 Campus Safety Supplemental Information.
If you see suspicious activity or suspicious person, report it to police by dialing 9-1-1
