WOOF! 🐾 I’m Blue, MUPD’s community outreach dog. If you see me on campus, stop and say hi! Tag your pics with me as #mupdblue!

More than 450 Blue Light Phones are located throughout campus and in the nearby neighborhood. Blue Light phones have cameras that are always recording.

By picking up the phone, a caller is connected with MUPD immediately. The communications officer will know the location of the caller and will dispatch assistance immediately if needed.

Blue Light Phones can be used for non-emergency situations such as directions, vehicle lockouts and jump-starts.

They are linked to the Command Information Center in MUPD and are used to help monitor suspicious behavior and document activity in a given area.

Surface lots and parking structures have cameras and are patrolled by public safety officers and police officers. In both parking structures 1 and 2, cameras are on each floor of the structure as well as in the elevator lobbies.

There are also panic buttons in every stairwell landing that connect directly to the Command Information Center in MUPD.


Patrol Boundaries
