For a map of the University's Emergency Call Boxes, click here.

Emergency call boxes are strategically placed around campus, can be easily identified by their bright blue lights and provide a direct line of communication with the USC Police.

To operate, simply push the red button. You will immediately be connected with the USC Police dispatcher. Even if you are unable to communicate, the dispatcher will know your exact location. If you are being chased and cannot stop, press the call boxes as you pass and police officers will respond to the area.

The call boxes are for EMERGENCY USE ONLY! The following are examples of when the call boxes should be used: crimes in progress, fires, medical emergencies, or threats to personal safety.
