Introducing the University Security Community Response Team

(15 October 2020)

We want to do everything we can to support our local communities through Covid-19. As part of this we have created a University Security Community Response Team, to support Durham Constabulary during the pandemic by engaging with our students, explaining to them the current local and national Covid-19 restrictions and encouraging them to observe these.

Two members of the CRT are now available from 8.30pm to 4.30am, seven nights a week – on patrol and ready to respond to incidents reported to the police.

If you observe potential Covid-19 breaches, please report them to the Police via their website live chat function,, or by calling the 101 police non-emergency number.

More information on the CRT is available here:
