Frequently Asked Questions
From campus phones, 911 calls go directly to the UK Police Dispatch Center. A dispatcher will ask you a number of questions. Stay on the line and answer all questions to the best of your ability. This does not prevent them from dispatching responders.
If you call 911 from a cell phone, the call will be directed to the Lexington Fayette Urban County 911 Call Center. Immediately tell the dispatcher that you are calling from the University of Kentucky and provide them with the street address or exact location from which you are calling.
For non-emergency calls, you can contact UK Police at (859) 257-1616 from a cell phone and be directly linked to the UK Police Dispatch Center.
Given that University of Kentucky is a state agency, all records pertaining to UK are classified as "public records," and thus are subject to inspection pursuant to the terms of the Open Records Act unless a specific exemption in the Act applies. The provisions of the Act are contained in KRS 61.870 to 61.884.
