Emory Police Department (EPD) & SafeRide
EPD, in conjunction with the Office of Community Services, provides a security escort called SafeRide to ensure the safety of those who travel the campus. These escorts are provided by the Community Services Officers, Student Patrol, and EPD officers.

To request the SafeRide service, call 404.727.8005 after hours, or 404.727.PARK during the day. The EPD dispatch or Community Services office will arrange for SafeRise escort to meet you and accompany you to your destination.


Shuttle Service
Emory University’s Office of Community Services operates a shuttle bus service between major buildings, parking areas, and residential centers. The drivers are in direct contact with the Community Services Dispatch via radio. Contact the Office of Community Services at 404.727.1829 for their shuttle routes and hours of operation.


Blue-Light Phones
There are many Blue-Light phones located through the entire Emory University campus that provide a direct connection to the EPD Communications Center, staffed 24-hours-a-day. If you have or know of a crime that is occurring, a fire or medical emergency, or need to request an escort, simply pick up the handset or press the “call” button and you will be connected to a 9-1-1 operator. Remember – help is just a call away!

Additionally, all elevators on campus are directly linked to the EPD Communications Center.
