Pick up one of the 27 yellow ERTS phones on campus. They are located at many locations across campus and can easily be identified by the blue light affixed on top of them. This will connect you direct to the University of Richmond Police Department Communications Center.
In an on-campus emergency, call 911. If you do not have an emergency, dial x8715 from any campus phone and you will be connected to the communications center.
When you dial 911 on your cell phone, you will be connected to a local emergency communications center––not the University of Richmond Police Department.
Depending where you are on campus, you could be connected to the Henrico County Emergency Communications Center, the City of Richmond Department of Emergency Communications, or Chesterfield County Emergency Communications. You will need to give specific information to the communications center you speak with and ask to be transferred to our department.
We recommend you use a land-line phone or an ERTS during a campus emergency to ensure you are connected with the University of Richmond Police Department Communications Center.
Crime statistics for the last three calendar years are available here. If you have any questions about the information, please contact us. We will be glad to review the document with you.
The University Police Department can only provide criminal history checks for authorized law enforcement agencies. If you would like a copy of your own criminal history, you may obtain one through the Virginia Department of State Police.
