Campus Blue Light Phones

Coppin State University has installed blue light phones throughout campus. Any person on campus can walk up, use a phone, and be immediately connected to Campus Police. 


Each blue light phone has 2 buttons:

  • Red button to press for emergencies
  • Black button for getting campus information

How to Use in an Emergency

  1. Press the red emergency button to turn on the blue light and connect to a Campus Police dispatcher
  2. Listen for the recording that states your location
  3. Wait 5 seconds for the dispatcher's voice
  4. Tell your emergency to the dispatcher

At the same time you talk with the dispatcher, a Campus Police Officer comes to your location. The dispatcher stays on the line with you until the Campus Police Officer arrives. 

How to Request Information

  1. Press the black button (note: the blue light will not turn on)
  2. Once you connect with the dispatcher, tell them your desired information and/or assistance
