Crime Reporting

Reporting Emergencies

To report an urgent situation where law enforcement, fire, or emergency medical services are required, please call 911.  When you are safe to do so, please then notify Campus Security and Public Safety by calling 509-313-2222.

 See our page on Emergency Reporting for more information on how to request emergency assistance.

Reporting to Campus Security

To file a report with Campus Security, call the Security Communications Center at 509-313-2222. A Campus Security Officer will respond to the call and assist the reporting party or victim.  Campus Security Officers can also assist in making a report with the Spokane Police Department (SPD), if requested.  To report non-emergency or delayed crimes to SPD, contact the Spokane Crime Reporting Center (CrimeCheck) at 509-456-2233. 

A representative from the Department is available to meet with a reporting party to explain resources and processes within the University, as well as the criminal justice system, and make referrals to appropriate assistance agencies. Reports received from these sources are forwarded to the Campus Security & Public Safety Department. Reports are evaluated for determining if a "Security Alert" to the community is appropriate, as well as inclusion in the required yearly crime statistics.

Crimes may be reported to Campus Security & Public Safety on a confidential basis if the reporting party does not wish to pursue University disciplinary action or criminal charges, however, the University reserves the right in compelling situations to take reasonable action in response to any crime report. All reports submitted on a confidential or anonymous basis are evaluated for purposes of issuing a campus-wide "Security Alert", as well as inclusion in the annual crime statistics.

Pastoral and Professional mental health counselors employed by the University have a professional obligation of confidentiality regarding information disclosed during a counseling session. The University does not include statistical information about crimes from such sessions. The University encourages counselors, if they deem appropriate, to advise clients of the options for reporting a criminal incident, including confidential/anonymous reporting, as well as reporting to Campus Security & Public Safety and police officials.
