Campus Safety and Security
Reporting an Emergency or Crime
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).
Dial 911– In any emergency situation, on or off campus, where there is risk to human life and/or personal safety, or when a crime is in progress, you are urged to Dial 911.
Dial 911– Campus Security Dispatch is available 24 hours a day. Law enforcement, fire protection and emergency medical services can be dispatched from this location.
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.
