Crime Prevention Annual Street Fair

At this event, Crime Prevention Officers from all over the state and community organizations present displays on various topics. This event is free and open to the entire Eagle Community. Different law enforcement organizations display helpful information on safety, job recruiting, and their departmental information.

Crime Alert

The crime alert is a flyer that is distributed immediately when a crime has occurred that endangers the lives and safety of the University family. This flyer will also give you safety tips to help prevent the same type incident from happening you.

Emergency Telephones

Blue light emergency phones are located throughout the campus. These telephones are for use when police assistance is needed. The telephone system gives your location to the University Police as soon as the red button is pushed. This alerts the University Police to respond immediately. There are 50 emergency phones throughout the campus. 

Escort Program

The University Police Department will provide escorts to the University family at night from one section of the campus to another, when requested. To receive an escort students, faculty, or staff must contact the Department at 919-530-6106. 

Honor Guard Team

The Honor Guard Team is a unit, which represents the University Police at ceremonial occasions. The Team also provides a full military type service at funerals of active/retired officers and those who gave their lives while serving and protecting their community. 

Residence Hall Watch Program

This program utilizes a proactive approach to crime prevention whereby the students in residence halls keep watch for any suspicious activities and/or persons in and around the residence hall. 

Operation Eagle Identification

This program allows the University Family to engrave their valuables with an electric engraver. The engraver can be checked out from the University Police Department, Crime Prevention Division at no expense. We ask that you put your operator's license number on the items you engrave because it can be traced much quicker by Police Departments across the state and country. Once you have completed your engraving we ask that you return the engraver promptly so others may use it. 


The Department emphasizes continuous training (mandatory in-service and electives) for sworn and non-sworn personnel. Officers must be up-to-date on the changing laws and policies. Officers also receive specialized and/or refresher training in: Firearms, Pursuit Driving, CPR, Officer Survival, etc
