Assistance Call Boxes
UTA PD maintains a network of emergency phones in many of the campus buildings and over 60 outdoor assistance call boxes around campus. These assistance call boxes have a blue light on top clearly marked "Assistance" (blue call boxes) "Public Assistance" (white call boxes). Pushing the call button activates a direct connection with the UTA PD that automatically pinpoints the caller's location.
Pushing a call button when there is NO EMERGENCY is the same as making a false report to law enforcement - a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 DAYS IN JAIL AND/OR A FINE OF $2000.
