Campus Police Presence

Campus Police Officers

The Campus Safety Officer Program, started fall 2016, now includes two full-time police officers on campus under the direction of Director of Campus Safety and Student Conduct Pua Utu. CMU's police officers work in conjunction with five officers from the Grand Junction Police Department (GJPD) assigned to the campus for a three-year term. The officers assigned to the campus have a station located on the northside of campus at 1060 Orchard Avenue. Campus Safety Assistants (CSAs) can also be found in a substation on the southside of the University Center.

To report a crime that is an EMERGENCY, DIAL 911.

The non-emergency phone number for the GJPD is 970.242.6707.

Emergency Blue Light Phone Program

Blue emergency telephones are strategically placed around CMU's main campus. When activated, the phones provide a direct connection via a 911 line to the regional communications center. When the phone is in use, a blue strobe light is activated which not only calls immediate attention to that particular area, but also assists emergency responders for a more direct response.

To use the phones, press the red emergency button. Wait for the dispatcher to answer and explain the problem.

Safe Walk Program

CMU offers a Safe Walk Program designed to provide safe travel around campus for students, faculty and staff. Trained Campus Safety Assistants (CSAs) are available to walk you safely anywhere on the main campus and up to two blocks off-campus.

This service is available daily from 6pm-2am. To contact a CSA, call 970.260.2683.
