Chief's Message

On behalf of the men and women of the UNLV Police Services Department, I would like to welcome and encourage you to explore our newly updated website. As you familiarize yourself with UNLV Police Services, you will find that this department is responsible for providing both police and security services to the entire campus community. These services include the following patrols:

We also provide other services to the community, including fingerprinting, lost and found services, notary services, and student security escort services. We even give interested individuals the opportunity to participate in our ride-along program with an officer.

Our department believes that education is the first step to prevention. Therefore, my staff and I personally give group lectures to students, faculty, and staff on a range of subjects, including the prevention of sexual assault, robbery, theft, and cybercrimes; active shooter safety; evening safety; and pedestrian safety.

We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are the providers and/or coordinators for all emergency services on campus. My commitment is to provide a professional police department staffed and equipped to serve the community. In turn, I ask you to think about what you can do to protect both yourself and your property.

Thank You,

José A. Elique,
Chief of Police/Director of Police Services
