Police Department  
Procedures & Facilities for Reporting
Criminal Acts & Emergencies

An OCU Police officer directs traffic on campus.The Oklahoma City University Police Department is charged by the University with responsibility for maintaining conditions necessary for a safe and secure learning environment, and strives for a crime-free campus. The Police Department is located in Suite 320 of the Clara E. Jones Administration Building, and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The dispatcher may be reached at 208-5911.

Students, faculty, staff, campus guests and others are requested to cooperate fully with police officers and to promptly report any crime or any suspicious activity to the Police Department. Failure to do so, making a false report or obstructing an investigation may result in sanctions, fines or other disciplinary action by the University or criminal prosecution.

Building Security and Access to Campus Facilities

For the safety of its students, faculty, staff and guests, Oklahoma City University seeks to maintain a closed campus and discourages trespassers. Students, faculty and staff must carry University identification cards at all times, and must present them to any university official upon request. While the University strives to maintain adequate evening lighting, individuals are discouraged from walking unaccompanied during the evening and late night hours. A call to the dispatcher for an escort will enhance individual safety.

Visitation hours are established in University housing and in fraternity and sorority facilities. Students should consult the Student Handbook regarding those policies, and any additional policies that may be established by dormitory authorities regarding other safety measures.

Reporting of Sexual Offenses

Students are encouraged to report all instances of sexual offenses against them. When sexual offenses have occurred on campus, reports should be made to the Oklahoma City University Police Department. Sexual offenses committed off-campus should be reported to the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Campus Disciplinary Proceedings

Disciplinary proceedings, if appropriate, will be imposed by the Dean of Student Life in accordance with established University policies.

Parking

Parking is available in close proximity to all buildings and dorms on the OCU campus. Each student who owns an automobile and plans to park on campus must purchase a valid parking permit from the Police Department. The cost of the permit is $100.00 annually. Permits are color coded to show which areas you may park in. If your vehicle is found in an area other than your parking zone, a parking citation will be issued.

  • You must be able to prove the vehicle is yours: bill of sale, registration check pulls up in your name on the state data base, etc.
  • You must have proof of insurance.
