Duress/Panic Button

Texas A&M Information Technology, along with TAMU Fire & Life Safety and the University Police Department (UPD), offer the installation and maintenance of duress buttons in approved buildings and departments on campus.

Once active and operational, a duress button can be utilized to silently request UPD response or assistance.

Getting Started

To request a duress button:

  1. Notify UPD of the panic button request. An application can be requested by contacting Lt. Allan Baron of UPD at 979-862-8125 or abaron@tamu.edu
  2. Complete a Work Order for duress button installation.
  3. Completing an AggieWorks request for Fire & Life Safety to activate the button.

The Duress/Panic button will not be active until all of these tasks have been completed, the button tested by TAMU Fire & Life Safety and confirmed operational.
