Law Enforcement on Campus (Policy SW-33)

Campus security is coordinated by the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Public Safety Department.


The UNMC Public Safety Department consists of 86 officers, both armed and unarmed. Officers undergo continuous on-the-job training to upgrade their skills. Officers conduct foot and vehicular patrols of the campus 24 hours a day in an effort to deter criminal acts. Unsafe conditions noted by UNMC Public Safety Officers during campus patrols are reported to Facilities Management and Planning.

On campus, the UNMC security department enforces all University regulations. The UNMC security department also works very closely with the Omaha Police Department and county, state and federal authorities.

Students, faculty and staff members are encouraged to make accurate and prompt reports to the UNMC Security Department and external law enforcement agencies. The department may assist students who choose to ask for help in notifying other appropriate authorities of offenses committed.
