Report ALL Crimes...you may save a life!
All crimes should be reported to us. Even if you think it is minor or not likely to result in catching of the perpetrator, reporting all crimes, no matter how minor, helps us track incidents, enhances current investigations, and may even show patterns or links to other crimes you might not be aware of.
We need the vigilance and support of the entire campus community to keep everyone safe. Please contact us immediately if you are the victim of or aware of;
- Any hate crimes such as hate related grafitti, phone messages, email messages, harassment, text messages
- Threats (either written, verbal, or digital such as email, phone, or myspace entries)
- Property Crimes
- Identity Theft
- Individuals with Child Pornography on their computers
- Individuals who are engaging in illicit drug activity
If You Have Been Victimized
If a person has been sexually assaulted, he/she should report the crime to the Office of Public Safety or the local police. The University provides support services for persons who have been victims of sexual assault. Staff will serve in an advocacy role and help refer individuals for appropriate medical, police, judicial and counseling assistance. Reported complaints of sexual assault will be investigated, and information obtained in this process will be kept as confidential as possible.
If you have been the victim of harassment, assault, threats, intimidation, or any other situation which makes you fear for your safety, please contact us. We can help you sort the situation out, refer you to assistive resources, and help you deal with the situation.
