What are Anonymous Tips?

Our campus community depends on its citizens to report crimes and concerns promptly and support crime prevention efforts.
If incidents go unreported, little can be done to prevent members of our community from becoming victims. You can help by reporting suspicious or concerning behavior and criminal activity immediately. 
Anonymous reporting allows you to report suspicious or concerning behavior and criminal activity. This is not to be used when you expect a police officer to respond or contact you the same day or for an emergency situation.

 DIAL 601-979-2580 FOR EMERGENCIES, THIS IS NOT A RESOURCE TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY OR AN ACTIVE DANGEROUS SITUATION.
