While our Campus Security patrol officers are responsible for upholding university policies and procedures, we are not police or special constables.
We also work closely with internal UBC partners such as UBC’s Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office (SVPRO) and UBC Investigations Office to educate and promote a safer community.
Campus Security works closely with the RCMP to assist in supporting victims, investigations and partners with them to educate the public to prevent crime.
University RCMP is the law enforcement authority assigned to UBC, the University Endowment Lands, including Pacific Spirits Park. They are responsible for enforcing the law, investigating criminal offences and responding to emergency situations or incidents.
Vancouver Fire Rescue Services
Campus Security assists Vancouver Fire Rescue Services (VFRS) with crowd control and access control during an emergency response to ensure safe and efficient emergency response.
Vancouver Fire Rescue Services is committed to the health and safety of our campus community, and will enhance awareness through education and involvement while providing world class fire and rescue services. In addition to fire suppression, VFRS provide pre-hospital care, vehicle rescue, marine response, hazardous materials response, technical rescue, and many other emergency services in Vancouver.
UBC’s Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Office
Campus Security works closely with UBC’s Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Office (SVPRO) to support persons that request safety planning and other required assistance.
SVPRO is a safe and confidential place for students, faculty, and staff who have experienced sexual violence, regardless of where or when it took place.
UBC Investigations Office
Campus Security refers persons affected to the UBC Investigations Office (UBC IO) if they wish to report the incident to UBC IO and support them in safety planning.
The UBC Investigations Office conducts arm’s length and impartial investigations into sexual misconduct and discrimination which are guided by the principles of procedural fairness, respect and a trauma-informed approach.
