Safety Escorts

If you are experiencing an immediate imminent threat to your safety and you believe a safety escort would assist you in your safety planning, please contact dispatch at 402-559-5111 and request to speak with the on-duty supervisor.  The on-duty supervisor will be able to assist you in getting an escort approved for that day and assist with other safety planning measures as well.

For any long term needs for a safety escort, please your request to the UNMC Public Safety Office at unmcsecoffice@unmc.edu.  Please include the following, if applicable:

  • Brief overview of situation
  • Case number(s) if there is an associated police report with your request
  • Time frame in which you anticipate the need for an escort
  • Your normal work hours
  • Your assigned parking lot
  • The primary location on campus where you work
