Emergency Call Boxes

Emergency call boxes have been placed at various locations on the SFA campus. These call boxes are white or bright yellow and are labeled "EMERGENCY" or "POLICE" in black letters. Operation is easy. Push the appropriate button - red button for 911 or black button for non-emergency calls, and talk directly into the speaker when the call is answered. Your call goes directly to the UPD Communications Center. Call boxes can be used to request police assistance, escorts, assists with vehicle problems and information.

Eyewitness Text Tips

In an effort to provide the university community with a way to make anonymous crime tips, the UPD is pleased to announce the addition of the Eyewitness Text Tip. This will allow anyone with information about a crime in progress or a crime that has already been reported to provide anonymous information to the UPD. It is simple. All you do is store the number 67283 in your cell phone, begin the text message with SFASUTIP {space} and begin your message. You will receive a confirmation text back that your tip was received.

However, if it is an emergency or you need immediate assistance, you should dial 911 from any campus phone or 936-468-2608 to report the emergency to the UPD.

Property Registration

The Property Registration System is designed to allow students and faculty to register their property in the event that it is lost or stolen. Law enforcement can use certain product information to specifically identify and recover property using national and statewide databases. Insurance companies oftentimes require product information for the products in question to be protected under an insurance policy. The Property Registration System is a tool to allow you to organize the identifying information of your personal property such as computers, cell phones, musical instruments, bicycles, MP3 players or iPod/iTouch players and any other items featuring an attribute that identifies your property from other similar property.

The Property Registration System can be accessed through mySFA. Navigate to the myServices section in mySFA and the UPD Property Registration System is located in the left navigation bar.

Rave Guardian mobile app

The UPD is pleased to announce the launch of the Rave Guardian mobile phone app to enhance campus safety through real-time interactive features that create a virtual safety network of friends, family, and the UPD.

Features in the mobile app include:

  • Panic Button: direct immediate connection to campus police with GPS location and personal information that you as the user enter in your profile.
  • Tip Texting: enables anonymous, 2-way, crime tip reporting through text and images.
  • Personal Guardians and Safety Timer: Students should set UPD as an automatic "Guardian" along with friends, roommates, and/or family when setting their Rave Guardian Safety Timer. During a timer session, Guardians and/or UPD can check the status of the student. If the Safety Timer is not deactivated before it expires, the person selected as a "Guardian" is automatically provided with the user's Rave Guardian profile to proactively identify and check in on the individual.
  • Safety Profile - Student-created Safety Profiles contain information such as residence details and medical conditions. When a student requires assistance (on- or off-campus), student Safety Profiles are displayed to UPD and Smart911 enabled 9-1-1 centers nationwide.

Once students, faculty, or staff download the Rave Guardian mobile phone app to their smart phone and connect with UPD using that smart phone, the app delivers a complete caller profile that the user enters information in. Such information includes current location, medical conditions, course schedule, addresses, photo, and other critical data. Again, the user must enter all of the information into their profile for UPD to see it. The personnel at UPD cannot see any information contained in your profile until you, the user, call our dispatch office.

Student Benefits:

  • Seamlessly fits into the always-on, mobile lifestyle of today's students.
  • Free to ALL students, faculty, and staff.
  • Enhances student safety with a virtual safety network of friends, family and UPD.
  • Improves sense of security by providing immediate connection to trusted resources.
  • Gives parents a tangible indicator of the university's commitment to their student's safety.

Faculty, staff, and students can download the Rave Guardian mobile phone app for either iPhone or Android phones by selecting the Rave Guardian app in the appropriate app store. To create your personal profile, you must enter your SFA-issued email address for the profile setup. Download instructions for installing and setting up your Rave Guardian app.

Crime Prevention Tips

If a crime is to be committed, the offender must have the desire, ability and opportunity to commit the crime. Law enforcement can do little to remove the offender's desire and ability to commit crimes, but together we can remove the element of opportunity. This is crime prevention.

You can remove the temptation of opportunity by taking a few simple precautions.

Protect Your Property:

  • Lock your door every time you leave - even for short trips down the hall (for instance, to visit your neighbors or coworkers).
  • Do not leave valuables lying out in the open.
  • Engrave your driver's license number on all valuable property (Operation ID).
  • Record the serial numbers and brand names of all property.

Protect Yourself:

  • Lock your door when you take a nap or retire for the evening.
  • Require identification before admitting someone unfamiliar into your room.
  • Don't walk alone at night. Stay on lighted walkways and use the Police Escort Service.
  • Report suspicious people or circumstances. Stop a crime before it happens.
  • Offer your confidential assistance to the UPD.
