High Point University Campus Police are primarily responsible for implementing a community policing model to advance the strategic goals and priorities of the University. Officers are required: to work closely with individuals and groups within the University community for the purpose of maintaining an atmosphere that supports quality campus life and reduces crime-related risks and vulnerabilities on the campus; to conduct high visibility patrol of campus buildings, grounds, roadways, and parking facilities; to respond to calls for service; to enforce University policies and state laws; demonstrate excellent communication and decision making skills in the delivery of police services; to render services unrelated to enforcement, including, but not limited to building security and educational programming.
The University Campus Police/Security employs full and part-time security officers throughout the year. These individuals support the police department’s security function and require the wearing of a uniform. Responsibilities include: conducting high visibility foot patrols of buildings and grounds; controlling access to certain areas; intervening in suspicious circumstances; locking and unlocking facilities; responding to calls for service including fire and medical emergencies; observing and reporting conditions, such as equipment that is out of order, vandalism, fire hazards, and violations of state laws and university regulations (including parking regulations), that require the attention of other University officials, such as police officers and maintenance personnel; responding to alarms and initiating evacuation procedures; directing traffic; providing security escorts; and assisting individuals by providing directions and assisting stranded motorists who may have a dead battery, or locked their keys in their vehicle. Dayshifts and night shifts may be available, work hours are flexible and can vary according to department needs.
Communications Officers handle all Police and Security telecommunications, including emergency 911, non-emergency calls, campus emergency phones, and radio calls. The Campus Police Communication Center is a 24-hour operation.
