Monona - at our place, just calling into the police dispatch may or may not get to the officers on tour. Also, the officers on tour may or may not walk around in the 20 buildings/1000 labs/1100 acres at any frequency that will do any good to alert them that a lab person may be in trouble. That call to security may work at a smaller place.

I've put into the policy to have the lab worker use the automatic alert/alarm/notification system we call "SB Guardian" ( ). It will work better than the call to dispatch, and its promoted on campus for many activities, not just lab work.
