RE: Update on Community Safety

As we approach the beginning of the school year and students are returning to the university and the surrounding area, we are partnering with the Cincinnati Police Department to provide for safety needs.

Officers from Cincinnati Police Districts 4 and 5 are increasing their presence and patrols in the areas around the Uptown Campus. Cincinnati Police neighborhood liaisons will continue their work in the communities, partnering with university efforts, to conduct safety education.

UC's NightRide, a free nighttime transportation service for students, faculty and staff, is fully operational, as is the university's safety ambassador program. These trained ambassadors walk in pairs in the neighborhoods adjacent to the Uptown campus during evening and nighttime hours.

Members of the campus community may report emergencies by calling 911, may contact NightRide at 556-RIDE, and may call 513-556-1111 for non-emergencies.
