Girls on Guard – Self-Defense Classes
We offer self-defense classes in order to provide women with the basic skills to escape an attacker and teach them how to avoid dangerous situations whenever possible. These classes are intended to help students to feel safer and better prepared on campus. Police Services' "Girls on Guard" self defense classes are open to all students, faculty and staff. In order to learn more and to participate in one of these sessions, please e-mail Sergeant Denise Murphy at denise.murphy@unlv.edu, or contact the Jean Nidetch Women's Center at 702-895-4475 for more information regarding classes. "Girls on Guard" self defense courses are scheduled upon request when participant interest is large enough to conduct a class so call today!

Safety and Security
To ensure a safe campus environment, Police Services participates with a number of administrative units on a biennial safety tour of the campus that checks such things as lighting levels, proper trimming of landscapes, and other physical security concerns. The department also is actively involved in doing security surveys of campus buildings through its detective bureau. To arrange a security survey of your facility contact Police Services’ Detective Unit for more information.

We routinely distribute crime prevention and safety materials to campus and local media outlets. We also distribute crime alert bulletins to notify the campus community of specific crime problems in their area.
