In a continuing effort to provide a safe campus environment to work, study, and play, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville invested in emergency telephones, which will allow for easy communications to the University Police Department.
The telephones are equipped with two buttons that will put you in direct connection with the Police Department. One is for emergency situations and the other is for non-emergencies. The emergency button will automatically dial 9-1-1. This will simultaneously notify the police telecommunicator the caller’s location. The second button is for non-emergency situations, such as to inform the police of car trouble, to obtain an escort, or any other non-emergency type of need. Each phone is equipped with a strobe light that is automatically activated when the phone is used. The strobe light will stay lit until a police officer de-activates the light.
Emergency outdoor telephones have been installed in areas such as the fan parking lots and bike paths on campus. The phones provide better accessibility to the police in the event of an emergency. The phones are located on the fan lots east of the academic area, north of University Park, and along the bike path to Cougar Village Apartments.
If you need to report a malfunctioning machine, please contact the University Police Department at 650-3324.
