Law Enforcement on Campus (Policy SW-33)

Campus security is coordinated by the UNMC security department, which has 54 officers. Security officers undergo continuous on-the-job training to upgrade their skills. Members of the UNMC security department are not armed. They conduct foot and vehicular patrols of the campus 24 hours a day in an effort to deter criminal acts. Unsafe conditions noted by UNMC security officers during campus patrol 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.
