Calling the Police

In case of an emergency where the safety of a student, yourself and or other people is/ are endangered, you should call the police for assistance. When you are calling the police, you should:

  1. Stay calm as much as you can.
  2. Try to seek help from others nearby, so that you don’t have to handle the situation alone.
  3. If you are a student, inform staff nearby in the department/centre/hall and seek their advice and help if possible.
  4. If you are the person calling the police:
    • Describe the critical situation and the assistance needed.
    • State the exact location of the student. If the student leaves the area, note which direction he/she takes.
    • Clearly state your name and your contact number to the police on the phone.

It is advisable to inform the Security Control Centre at (852) 3917-2882 as they can effectively direct the police or ambulance to the exact location on campus.
