Reporting Incidents or Crimes to Public Safety
To report a crime, emergency, suspicious act or fire, please contact any public safety officer at any campus. Suspicious activities may also be reported on this website. Just go to Contact Us, then click on Silent Witness.
Reporting a Crime
All crimes against person
and property should be reported as soon as possible to the Office of Public
Safety. This helps
us apprehend criminals and make strategic decisions about the deployment of
security resources. Incidents can be reported in person in the Public Safety
office (B-122 in the West Building), by phone (212-772-4444) if the crime is in process, or to any uniformed officer on campus. The Office of Public Safety will assist you in reporting a
crime to the NYPD as necessary.
Even if you do not want to pursue action with the College or the criminal justice system, please make a confidential report which does not reveal your identity to the Public Safety Office. This helps us keep an accurate record of the number and nature of incidents, determine whether there is a pattern of crime and we need to redeploy our security officers, and alert the campus community to a potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the crime statistics of the College.
