The UNCG Police Department depends on our relationship with the campus community for support. We strive to be a resource that aligns our services with the mission and vision of the university. Forging a relationships with our community creates an opportunity for us to build trust and improve our level of service. We place a strong focus on community and commit a significant amount of resources to building that relationship that translates into a safer campus. Please join us in one of our many community relations programs listed below.
At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro we believe that a safe campus is cultivated, in part, through community partnerships. The UNCG Police work hand-in-hand with many groups and organizations to share resources and expertise to build a strong, safe and prosperous university community. We are partnering with the city, neighborhood associations, area businesses, and off-campus student apartment complexes to help make the surrounding campus community safer. For more information about how to become a Campus Community Partner contact the Community Relations Unit at 336-334-5069.
Campus Safety Walk
Have you ever noticed lights out on campus or uneven pavement in need of repair? Well, it’s good to know that our campus is taking steps to address these concerns! Every year the University Police Department and Student Government Association (SGA) host a Campus Safety Walk with students, officers, and staff to locate safety concerns and take corrective action. Please join us in the Fall for our next Safety Walk.
Once per semester the UNCG Police Department teams up with CAP, ACE, and SGA to host a cookout on campus. This is a great opportunity to interact with students through food, games, and music.
House Calls is sponsored by Housing and Residence Life and provides an opportunity for first year students to interact with UNCG faculty, administrators, and staff on a personal level. Faculty and staff volunteers visit new first-year students in their rooms to personally welcome you to UNCG.
As part of our community outreach program, the UNCG Police Department helps residential students move-in. That’s right, cops carrying boxes and helping students and their parents move their stuff. What a great way to begin the semester and get to know some of the officers on campus. It is our hope to make a great first impression and show the students that the university police department is a valuable community resource.
They provide valuable information about UNCG programs and services and help to ease the transition of first-year students to the University experience.
Student, Faculty, and Staff Advisory Councils
The councils strive to bring the campus community and UNCG Police together in order to foster a more cohesive relationship between them. The councils’ purpose is to be a voice for the campus community, and to make recommendations to the Chief of Police which helps to improve service and community relations. Three main objectives guide the council:
- to bring diverse perspectives which help guide practices of the police,
- to help address the community’s concerns regarding police practices and
- to propose new programs, workshops and community-outreach efforts of the UNCG Police.
