The UNCG Police Department is committed to providing the highest level of campus law enforcement services available. Our officers and employees are highly trained and dedicated individuals whose personal mission is to make sure your experience at UNCG is not only memorable and successful, but also safe. We are counting on you to not only take responsibility for your own safety but the safety of others. The police department offers these and other programs to help you and your fellow Spartans achieve a safe and secure community.
The UNCG Police Department recommends that any department requiring regular after-hours access, consider the installation of a swipe or proximity access door. These doors enable you to control after-hours access based on credentials and rights granted by the department and without requiring a police response. Understanding that some departments will not have an after-hours door, we have created this web form which allows only authorized individuals to submit access requests to the police.
Building Security Assessments
Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts by affecting the building, social and administrative environment. The UNCG Police Department is actively engaged with Facilities, Design and Construction to strategically address security concerns across the campus. The 2017-2020 Master Security Plan provides a unified, comprehensive strategy to enhance the safety and security of the campus; and operational directives designed to mitigate existing risks, educate the campus community and deter criminal behavior. The Plan’s risk management strategy will promote a safe and secure environment as the university infrastructure and facilities evolve over time.
The purpose of a security assessment is to identify the current security posture of university structures and buildings on campus. The assessment provides recommendations for improvement, which could possibly enhance security for the building, faculty/staff, and all other patrons. Upon completion of the assessment, the department will provide informative report of all recommendations. For those interested in conducting an assessment in a department or building, contact the Community Relations Unit at 336.334.5069.

Lost and Found
Most buildings on campus have lost and found sites. However, the UNCG Police Department collects items of high value to include, but not limited to, the following: laptops, tablets, iPods, gaming systems, cellphones, jewelry, currency, checks, credit cards, and any form of identification other than UNCG Spartan Cards.

If unclaimed, found property will be held for a minimum of 180 days. It is then advertised once a year in the month of September in the Greensboro News and Record Legal Ad section. Thirty days after running the ad, property rights will be relinquished. Property is then sold on www.propertyroom.com and the proceeds turned over to the local school board as required by law.
