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 others services to the community that include fingerprinting, lost & found, notary, 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, I personally give group lectures to students, faculty, and staff on a range of subjects including the prevention of sexual assault, robbery, theft, evening safety, pedestrian safety, and cyber crimes.
We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are the provider and/or coordinator 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.
José A. Elique,
Chief of Police/Director of Police Services
