Safety Guide

Delta State’s Guide to Campus Safety covers topics like authority, crime prevention, drugs and alcohol, sexual assault, weapons on campus, cell phone use, and emergency procedures.  
Emergency Phones

Emergency telephones are strategically located across campus. Each phone is identified with a reflective sign stating Emergency Phone. In case of emergency, the call button can be used to contact the police directly. If possible, the caller should state their name, location, and the nature of the emergency.
