Report a Criminal Action or Emergency

To report a crime or emergency, members of the campus community should call the campus emergency line at 998-5555.  All campus phones in public areas have the emergency number posted on the phone.  This number is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  In the lobbies or public areas of all campus buildings there are free on-campus public phones from which the Taylor University Police Department can also be reached by dialing x85555.

The Taylor University Police Department maintains both direct telephone and two-way radio contact with Upland Police Department, Gas City Police Department, Upland Fire Department, Grant County Sheriff's Department, Grant County Ambulance Service, and the Indiana State Police.  The 911 system is also available as back-up to the Taylor University emergency phone system.  Students are encouraged to dial 9-9-1-1 to ensure quicker response to an emergency.
