University Police Department Services

Motorist Assist

The University Police Department can provide, for use by the campus community and visitors, a portable vehicle jump starter. The portable unit alleviates the need for a second vehicle. It also offers safeguards in the process of dealing with a vehicle’s dead battery. 

To use this unit, please come directly to Schrader Hall, Room 19. The jump starter will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You will need to provide your driver’s license and cell phone number. In addition, you’ll need to read the instructions and sign the jump starter sign in/out log. Please do not hesitate to ask should you need further assistance using the jump starter.

Lost and Found

The University Police Department is the centralized location for all lost and found items. Students, employees and visitors are encouraged to contact us to attempt to locate lost property. Anyone claiming lost and found property must show valid identification, such as SUNY Geneseo ID or a valid driver’s license. Any items found should be delivered to or reported to the University Police Department in Schrader Hall, Room 19. 

Operation Identification

Operation Identification is a state-wide effort to discourage burglary and theft by engraving personal property with an identification number. These numbers are easily traceable within the United States and Canada. In the event a belonging is lost or stolen, the identification number can be traced back to you. If you would like to use this service, please contact the University Police Department.

Blue Light Emergency Phone System

The blue light emergency phone system is a safety measure available to anyone who feels they are in danger. There are over seventy blue light phones on campus linked directly to the University Police Department. The telephones are easily recognized in parking lots, on residence hall buildings and along roadways. In an emergency, activate the emergency contact button to talk to the University Police Department. A University Police Officer will respond to the location where the call was made. If you feel unsafe remaining at that location, activate blue light emergency phones as you move to another location.
