Beginning yesterday, members of the UR community may contact the Department of Public Safety (DPS) via text, using the 585-275-3333 DPS phone number. Dispatchers are also able to respond to these messages over text as well.

DPS covers on-campus disturbances. Off campus, the Rochester Police Department also has a text function.
