ULM, CenturyTel to Sponsor Emergency Number

CenturyTel and the University of Louisiana at Monroe have announced an agreement which will assist the University Police in responding to campus crime and safety issues.

Beginning Dec. 1, CenturyTel customers can dial *UPD to report any issues concerning safety on the ULM campus. Customers can use this service at no charge from anywhere in the designated service area.

"This is something we've been pushing for for three or four years," Larry Ellerman, Chief of University Police at ULM said. "Having the *UPD service will allow faculty and students to more easily contact us about safety and crime issues."
