Importance of Reporting Crimes
If crimes are never reported, little can be done to help other members of the community from also being victims. Citizens are encouraged to report crimes promptly and participate in and support crime prevention efforts. The University community can be much safer with your assistance. You can assist us by reporting unusual activity to the police immediately. The likelihood of arresting an offender drops with each minute of delay in reporting.
