How To Report Crimes

Dial 911 for Emergencies

It is critically important that all crimes occurring on campus be immediately reported to University Police to ensure that appropriate action is taken. Crimes occurring on campus or in/on off-campus buildings and property can be reported at any time of day or night seven days a week:

  • In an EMERGENCY: Dial 9-1-1
  • In person, at the University Police station
  • From any On-Campus Emergency Blue Phones
  • Non Emergency - Calling (657) 278-2515 or x2515.

Crime in Progress

When you call University Police to report a crime, either one that is in progress (i.e., happening right now) or that has already occurred, remember the Who, What, When, Where and How rule.

Tell the police dispatcher:

  • Who you are
  • What happened based on what you know or what a victim of or witness to the crime has told you
  • When approximately the crime occurred
  • Where it occurred (exact address, building name, room number, etc.)
  • Where you are calling from (if different from the crime scene)
  • How it occurred (e.g., entry gained through a window or door)

A University Police officer will respond as soon as possible, depending on the priority of the crime you are reporting and the availability of a police officer to respond. University Police will take a report for all crimes that occur within our jurisdiction.
