The University of North Texas Police Department currently monitors and maintains over 70 emergency phones that have been strategically installed throughout the campus. The emergency phones have a touch button that has direct line access to the UNT Police Department at any time. The green pole, blue strobe light, and the word “EMERGENCY" stenciled on three sides identify the emergency phones. Once the talk button is activated, the caller can speak directly with a police dispatcher. These phones can be used for the following reasons:
- To report suspicious activity or persons
- Lost or in need of directions
- Vehicle Emergencies
- Report an incident or offense
- If being followed
The emergency phones serve the same purpose as a courtesy phone, with the added feature of the strobe light that attracts attention in case of a real emergency.
Please see the campus map below to locate emergency phones.
