This form should NOT be used to report any type of emergency. If you have an emergency on campus, please call x5212 from any on campus phone, or 216-373-5212 from any off campus or cell phone. You may also dial 9-1-1 and ask for the Notre Dame College Police Department. (If you are dialing 911 from an on-campus phone, you must dial 9-9-1-1)
If you know of a crime that has happened or is about to happen, please come down to the Police Station – Ground Floor of the Administration Building, across from Information Technology and Maintenance. Reporting even what you may feel is “insignificant” or “stupid” could be the key to solving and preventing a crime, ensuring a person is healthy, or even saving a life. The campus police department is here as a resource for all members of the College Community.
Anything or anyone can be reported to campus police at any time. Anything you feel is “out of the ordinary” should be immediately reported to the nearest Resident Assistant, Graduate Assistant/Hall Director, Faculty Member, Staff Member, Police Officer, or Security Officer. While it is best to report these situations in person, this form is designed to provide you a feeling of anonymity if you fear any retaliation. Understand that if you decide to report in person, we will protect your identity and remarks to the best of our abilities. If you are concerned, please stop the nearest police or security officer and ask. We are always happy to speak with each and every one of you.
This form may also be used if you feel an individual needs counseling. The campus police department is in the business of helping members of the College Community excel at life-long learning. Any tips that are for welfare checks or mental health concerns will be treated with the highest level of discretion, as allowed by law.
If you are uncomfortable speaking to us in person, or are just in fear of retaliation for being a witness, feel free to fill out this form. If you prefer to remain anonymous, leave the fields for your personal information blank.
If you are in fear of retaliation, know that we can help you.
What should I report?
You can report anything, including but not limited to:
- Criminal Activity
- College policy violations
- Concerns for fellow students
- Any behavioral issues that seem “odd” or “out of the ordinary”
- Anyone else that may have knowledge of any item listed above
- Anything else you think campus police should know
Reporting information to campus police, Residence Life, Student Life, or any other staff member of Notre Dame College is vital to ensuring safety and security on campus. While we at the campus police department patrol constantly and investigate all complaints – regardless of how minor they may seem to you – we cannot prevent all issues and crimes by ourselves. It is your duty as a member of the College to assist us.
