Report to Law Enforcement
If you are in an emergency situation, dial 911 from anywhere for immediate assistance.
Reporting to law enforcement is an option available to you if you have experienced harassment, sexual violence, interpersonal violence, or stalking. Reporting to law enforcement may allow for a criminal investigation to be conducted and criminal charges to follow. You may bring a support person with you to make the report.
For emergency situations, dial 911 for immediate assistance. If you call 911 on campus, the University’s Department of Public Safety (DPS) (campus police) will respond. For non-emergency situations, call local law enforcement or DPS’s non-emergency number and ask to speak with an investigator. DPS will inform the necessary University staff of the incident.
If you are not ready to file a report with law enforcement, you can still call one a local law enforcement agency and ask to speak with an investigator about what would happen if you file a report and the protective orders that are available.
