The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Police Department operations is supported by the Communications Center, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The University strongly encourages students, employees and visitors to accurately and promptly report crimes, suspicious activity and other public safety related emergencies to the UTC PD, which is the University’s primary reporting structure for crimes and emergencies.
All emergency calls should be made to the campus 911 system by calling the UTC PD Communications Center at 423-425-4357 from any campus phone. You may also use this line for non-emergency reporting. Reports of crimes or emergencies may also be made by dialing 911 from a cell phone or other non-University phone. It is important to note that a 911 call made from a cell phone or non-University phone will be routed to Hamilton County 911. Once the off-campus telecommunicator determines the call is coming from the campus, he/she will transfer the call to UTC PD.
