Recently, Chattanooga Police Department implemented a new protocol regarding their response to traffic accidents.
As all UTC vehicles are considered government-owned vehicles, please continue to call 911 (off campus), 911 from a campus phone, or 425-4357 (HELP) to report an accident on campus. Inform Dispatch that the vehicle involved is a UTC vehicle. Also note that this includes those that are driving rental, or personally owned, vehicles on official university business. In that case, inform Dispatch that you are on official university business.
If the accident involves a non-state-owned vehicle, property, or a person, an additional required step is to report the accident to the State of Tennessee Call Center at 855-253-0629 within 24 hours.
