Actual or potential criminal actions and other emergencies on campus can be reported directly by any student, faculty, staff member, or visitor to the University Police. For emergencies, dial extension 3300 or 9-911 from any on campus phone for a direct contact with the UMES Police Dispatcher or Somerset Central 911 Center to report an emergency. The Department utilizes criminal justice student interns each semester. The students receive Department training and assist the University Police by performing non-law enforcement support functions.
Additionally, we have security officers who provide additional overall security throughout campus and at special events/activities held on campus.
