    • We have an obligation to be good stewards of state property
  • Stolen property is required to be reported to the SBI
  • Media Interest
    • Our reports are public records
    • Outlets often look for opportunities to showcase perceived negligence
emergencies who does what
Emergencies – Who Does What
  • Officers respond to all emergencies
  • When a threat is confirmed, the siren system is activated
  • Generally, the initial campus wide emergency message is sent out by police, but others could do it
  • Depending upon the nature of the emergency UNCWPD’s partners are EH&S, H&RL, Facilities, ODOS and others
  • Once UPD has transferred the responsibility, follow-up and all clear messages go through Office University Relations
emergencies how does it come together
Emergencies – How Does It Come Together
  • Officers respond to and evaluate the situation that they encounter – notifications sent up the chain of command
  • Incident command is set up
  • Crisis Decision Team (Chancellor, cabinet members, etc.) members are briefed
  • Emergency Operations Center is activated
  • Resources are allocated
  • The most appropriate resolution is sought
  • We give priority to actions and incidents in the following order:
    • life safety
    • property security
    • program continuation
