UCIV Representative Operations

How are UCIV Representatives trained?
UCIV Representatives undergo multiple different trainings in order to prepare them for their position as a public safety representative. These trainings include: bystander intervention training, Stop-The-Bleed training, Narcan training, and de-escalation training.
All UCIV Representatives are provided with a handbook that also reinforces the ideals learned within these trainings. In addition, Representatives remain in constant contact with the main station via radio and phone communications.
