Police officer interaction provides ongoing awareness and education. Through these efforts, the following activities of crime prevention are carried out.

Coffee with a Cop Program

This is a new event the UNO Police Department implemented in 2013. The coffee with cop program is held at various times each semester and affords UNO students, potential students, and parents time to spend with the UNO officers who patrol the campus. It is an informal gathering where coffee and other refreshments are served in a friendly atmosphere and the UNO community can interact one-on-one with its police officers.

Rape Aggression Defense (RAD)

The UNO Police Department periodically holds RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) classes during the school semesters. The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. The RAD System is a comprehensive course for woman that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by certified RAD Instructors and provide you with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth. For more information and scheduling contact any of the UNO Police Department certified trainers at 504-280-6371.

Active Shooter Training

The video below (click on link) is on the Alabama Department of Homeland Security web page: Resources-Resources for Citizens-Active Shooter. It is about 6 minutes long and is just a quick lesson on how to react in the event there is an active shooter in a location where you or your family might be involved. Please take the opportunity to share this with your family, friends and co-workers. Attitude and planning (however small) may be the difference.

The UNO Police Department would like to thank the Alabama Department of Homeland Security for producing the video and allowing us to make it accessible to the UNO Community.
