Installation of Emergency Call Boxes

The ASU Police Department (ASU PD) committee reviews the request for installation of an emergency call box by using established criteria as defined in this policy.

If the application is not approved, documents are retained on file within the ASU PD and the requestor of the call box is notified of the reason for denial.

If the application is approved, the committee and Facilities Management commit funds and coordinate for installation.

If installation of an emergency call box is required in a parking structure, Parking and Transit Services (PTS) evaluates the need and determines the most suitable location.

Operational Inspections and Maintenance

The ASU PD maintains records and assumes responsibility for all call box systems. ASU PD checks all call boxes each month.

Telephone Services conducts daily line continuity checks and repairs any line outages as soon as they are discovered. If a malfunctioning call box is identified during a functional check, ASU Police report the malfunctioning call box to Facilities Management and/or Telephone Services as soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours after the discovery of the malfunction.

Facilities Management repairs all defective call boxes, except for defective phone lines.
