Reporting an Emergency or Crime

If this is an emergency, dial 911

On-campus emergency line: 6911

Emergency Assistance Call Boxes (located throughout campus) provide
immediate connection to Campus Security Dispatch. Dispatch may also be
reached in person at the Assisi Heights Community Center or through
security guards patrolling campus. In response to a call, FUS will take
the required action, dispatching a security guard.

Non-Emergency Situations

Prompt and accurate reporting of criminal offenses safeguards the
campus community and aids in providing a timely response as well as
timely warning notices to the community when appropriate. Prompt and
accurate reporting also assists in compiling accurate campus crime
statistics. FUS community members and guests are encouraged to report
all crimes, suspicious activity and public safety related incidents in
an accurate and timely manner to FUS Security, local law enforcement
authorities or FUS employees who have been identified as Campus Security
Authorities (identified below).
