Where Did It Go?

  • Lost or stolen state property

    • 32 cases reported in 2013

    • 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
