The UTSA Department of Public Safety recently forged a new partnership with Centro San Antonio to enhance the wide range of services and resources that support a safe, clean and welcoming campus experience.
Through the partnership, Centro will provide trained ambassadors to conduct daily patrols and offer safety escorts on and around the university’s Downtown and Southwest Campuses, including San Pedro I, which opened earlier this month along San Pedro Creek, and the construction site of the San Pedro II building. Centro will also provide regular cleaning services for these urban facilities.
This partnership marks the latest addition to UTSA public safety’s resources for the campus community. The UTSA Department of Public Safety will continue to concurrently provide on-demand safety escorts by UTSAPD officers, security guards and Rowdy Watch student employees. Additional support includes 24-hour campus patrols, on-campus vehicle assistance and over 130 blue light emergency telephones across all campuses, providing a direct connection to UTSAPD dispatch.
Members of the university community can also access the LiveSafe app, which crowdsources safety and security notices, messages UTSAPD dispatchers in an emergency and offers a SafeWalk feature enabling family members and friends to track their loved ones
