Campus Safety

 

The UNCSA Police Department has responsibility for police, public safety/security, emergency communications center, emergency management, parking, and business continuity.  Our mission is to contribute to and promote the greater mission of the UNC School of the Arts by facilitating a safe, secure, and service-oriented environment for all students, faculty, staff, alumni, stakeholders, and general visitors to the UNCSA campus or other UNCSA owned or leased properties.  The Department handles 8,500-10,000 calls for service and police/safety activities annually.

Police:  The UNCSA Police Department employs 16 professionally trained police officers who meet the standards set forth by the Criminal Justice and Standards Division of the State of North Carolina under General Statute 17C. These officers have the authority to enforce federal, state and local laws, as well as the rules and regulations of the University of North Carolina. Our police jurisdiction includes all UNCSA owned or leased property, that portion of any public road passing through the campus, and that portion of any public road immediately adjoining the campus (Cf. General Statute 116-40.5).  For UNCSA community members that are a victim of crime in the City of Winston Salem, UNCSA Police will facilitate response of a WSPD officer to our location to take a police report.  Additionally, UNCSA officers will provide an escort to the local court for hearings, protective (restraining) orders, and witness testimony for UNCSA community members that request that level of assistance.

UNCSA uniformed officers patrol campus buildings and grounds 24 hours a day, seven days a week.   Officers respond to crimes in progress, medical/fire/burglar/duress alarms, and crime scenes. All calls and requests are handled on a priority basis. Officers conduct follow-up criminal investigations, process evidence, make criminal apprehensions, and work with the District Attorney on cases proceeding through the court system.  Officers also direct and monitor vehicular traffic, taking proper enforcement action when needed.

Emergency Communications Center:  The UNCSA communications center is staffed “24/7” by 6 full-time professional communications officers. Calls are received and dispatched to police and emergency personnel.  The Police Department is the primary first responder for a crime, suspicious circumstance, medical crisis, intrusion/fire alarm, or other emergency situation. 

Public Safety: Safety and security services extend beyond law enforcement into services including, but not limited to: managing the surveillance camera and alarm systems on campus, providing security escorts, conducting motorist assists, engraving personal items for crime prevention, performing University bank deposit escorts, coordinating lost and found, providing prop weapons escorts, reviewing open-flame permits, registering bicycles, instructing community safety-related educational programs, among many others. The Police Department assists with approximately 400 special events held on campus (including the downtown 1,380-seat Stevens Center) each year, providing services which include parking, traffic direction, crowd control, crime prevention, and critical incident management.

Emergency Management: Our Emergency Management Coordinator is responsible for facilitating emergency plans, testing emergency radios issued to high risk areas on campus, scheduling and overseeing emergency response tabletops exercises and drills, providing weather-monitoring radios across campus, emergency notification systems, and maintaining our StormReady certification.  In the event of a serious critical incident, the Emergency Operations Center is activated and UNCSA Police personnel serve as incident commanders, as well as advisors to UNCSA administrators.

Parking Decals And Enforcement: All students, faculty, and staff that park on UNCSA  property must display a valid parking decal or temporary permit, appropriately placed, on the vehicle being parked.  There are 1,043 parking spaces on campus.  All lots are designated for specific types of parking categories: commuter students, resident students, Center Stage students, non-reserved faculty/staff, reserved faculty/staff and visitors.   We ask for voluntary compliance with parking regulations to facilitate the orderly flow of normal operations and special events on any given day.
