Message from the Chief
Dear University Friends,
Welcome to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Public Safety website. Here, we strive to create an uncomplicated, user-friendly site which allows you the greatest ease in gaining information about our policies and services.
From links on safety tips and criminal activity reports to alternative transportation options; from the latest adverse weather information to up-to-date reports on campus construction’s impact on mobility: this site is your virtual road to safety, transportation, and parking information.
In addition to the presentation of information to you, we’ve tried to make it easier for you to make yourself heard within our department. Please use our silent witness program to report suspicious activities, and feel free to contact our department to express your opinions and suggestions.
I invite you to explore the very fundamentals upon which our Department operates by reading our Mission, Vision, and Core Values and come to understand the guiding philosophy of our law enforcement practices by learning more about Community Oriented Policing. Together, we can create an environment in which the community can take pride and feel safe as our members pursue their individual endeavors.
Chief Jeff B. McCracken
Director of Public Safety
