Emergency Call Boxes

The University of Windsor Campus Community Police (CCP) currently maintains 270 emergency call boxes across campus, including the downtown campus. 

These emergency call boxes are two-way speakerphones that are programmed to dial CCP directly when the button is pushed ANY TIME of the day or night, 365 days a year.

There are a few variations of the emergency call boxes you will see around campus.


Emergency Blue Light Pole

There are a total of 27 outdoor emergency blue light poles located on campus. 

When a person presses the red emergency button, they can remain in direct verbal contact with the telecommunicator until police arrive. The flashing blue lights serve as a beacon to responding officers and others in the vicinity.

The Emergency Blue Pole is in operational mode 24/7 with Campus Police response.
