**Blue Light phones provide direct communication with the University Police Department and are used to report crime, fire, medical emergencies or to request a police escort. To operate, press the button and a University Police Department official will answer immediately. A strobe light is activated providing visibility for the responding officer and location information is provided to the UPD dispatch office as well. There are over 335 Blue Light Emergency Phones located on campus. The myIT system has made resolving technical issues with UF's emergency Blue Light phones quicker than ever. University Police Department (UPD) officers can now use their mobile devices to immediately report issues impacting a Blue Light phone directly to UFIT's Network Services group. Prior to this service enhancement, reporting an issue required a paper submission, with reports having to be physically delivered to UFIT technicians. Blue Light phones were adopted by UPD in 1977. More than 300 of the non-dial emergency phones are now located around campus for the added protection of UF students, faculty, and staff. Faster, more efficient technical-issue reporting on myIT ensures that Blue Light apps are up and running 24/7. Visit the ITSM website to learn more about the myIT service request system and to email questions or system suggestions to the ITSM project team.
