Campus Safety Escort –  The purpose of the safety escort program is to provide walking escorts for faculty, staff, students, and visitors who feel unsafe on campus. Escorts are provided by police officers, security officers and student rangers upon request. All escorts provided by the UNCG Police Department will be confined only locations on campus. Call (336) 334-5963 or request a walking escort through the LiveSafe Mobile Safety App today! For other transportation options offered on campus, please visit the Parking Operations & Campus Access Management website at parking.uncg.edu.

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. Spartan Cards should be turned into the SpartanCard Center located in 121 Elliot University Center. If you find such an item, contact the police department immediately for collection. If you have lost an item you should begin by searching the location where you remember having it last. If you are still unable to locate your item, you may contact the police at (336) 334-5963 to inquire. Property eligible to be returned is held for a minimum of 180 days and then advertised once a year during the month of September for sale or destruction in The Carolinian. 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 law. Other items may be donated to charity. Bicycles that are considered lost and found are maintained by Parking Services (336) 334-5681.

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 built, social and administrative environment. The UNCG Police Department is actively engaged with Facilities, Design and Construction to strategically addresses 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 strategic 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.

Fingerprinting – Fingerprinting services are available at 1200 West Gate City Blvd. every Wednesday from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM using Live Scan. Please bring a valid photo identification with you and a second form of identification. Each fingerprint card costs $5. Payments must be exact change, and are only acceptable in cash. Appointments are not required.

Free Speech, Public Assembly, Petitioning and Amplified Sound – The University of North Carolina at Greensboro values freedom of speech as one of the fundamental rights guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution and as the best means for arriving at truth and mutual understanding. Peaceable assembly and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances are also rights guaranteed by the First Amendment and are concomitant to the right of free speech.
