Reporting Incidents

Public Safety strongly recommends that all crimes, suspicious activity and emergency situations which occur on campus or in the campus area be immediately reported. Dispatchers are on duty 24 hours a day to take your call and send Public Safety Officers to investigate.

To report an incident:

  • Call the Department of Public Safety from a campus telephone by dialing 711 or Ext. 2330, or
  • From an off-campus telephone or cellphone call 716.888.2330, or 
  • Visit the Public Safety Office in the lower level of Bosch Residence Hall.

In addition, a number of well-marked blue-light telephones are located throughout the campus grounds, in the tunnels and at most building entrances. These phones can be used to report a criminal incident, fire or any other type of emergency. To report crimes and incidents off-campus, please contact the law enforcement agency serving the area that you are in.

A victim of a crime on campus or in the campus area may report the incident confidentially. To do this, the Counseling Center may be contacted at 716.888.2620. If it is determined that the circumstances of the crime pose a danger to other members of the campus community, then general information about the incident may be released to Public Safety or other members of the campus community.
