Safety (Escort) Resources

Police auxiliaryThe University of Maryland Police Department provides an escort service for anyone who feels unsafe when walking across campus. The escorts are conducted by the Student Police Auxiliary foot patrol program in which Student Police Aides (SPAs) patrol the campus on foot and on bicycle.

If you would like an escort, please call the UMDPS to request one at:
(301) 405-3555 (off campus) / 53555 (on campus)
You may also use a blue light emergency PERT phone to call for an escort.


The police escort service is available to community members at all times. The hours of the Auxiliary Division foot patrol program are Monday-Friday, 6:00 p.m. to midnight, during which times a Police Aide will provide the escort. Police Officers will provide escorts when the Auxiliary Division foot patrol is out of service or if requested and available.

For more information regarding the services provided by the Student Police Auxiliary, please contact SPA Coordinator Mr. Jaap Bier at (301) 405-5752 or
