What To Do In An Emergency
Who to call in an emergency
UMMC PD is committed to providing a safe environment for all of our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors. Please familiarize yourself with the process for summoning help in case of an emergency and for reporting an incident. When calling, please remain on the line to ensure dispatchers have the correct location and understand the nature of the incident.
Please note when calling 911 from a mobile device, the call will first be routed to the Jackson Police Department or Hinds County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center and then forwarded to UMMC PD Dispatch once they determine the emergency is on UMMC’s campus. Everyone is encouraged to scan the following QR code to upload UMMC PD Dispatch’s direct contact information into your cell phone’s contact list for quick access in case of an emergency.
