Ambulance?  Dial 9-911

Other Emergencies?  Dial 4155

For quickest response in on-campus emergency situations, it is best to dial the Delta State Campus Police Department at 662-846-4155.  Dialing 911 on campus phones yields nothing, since the phone system only connects when it receives a 4-digit number.

Dialing 9-911 will connect to the Bolivar County Emergency Communications Center and is the best number to dial for an ambulance.

For other emergencies, the Bolivar County Emergency Communications Center will route the 9-911 call to the DSU Police Department.  So, unless an ambulance is needed, save time and phone the DSU Campus Police Department directly:
