WNMU Campus Police

If You Are A Victim Of A Crime

If you are the victim of a crime while at WNMU, report it immediately to the WNMU Police Department. In case of emergency, call 911. For non-emergencies, call 538-6231.

When you call:

         Give your name

         The location you are calling from

         A brief description of what occurred

         And whether the person who committed the crime is still in the area.

Prompt reporting and specific information will increase the chances of solving your case. An WNMU police officer will be dispatched to meet with you and obtain all of the necessary information.

IF evidence from the crime is still intact, please do not move or destroy it. This is especially important in sexual assault cases. Note: Showering, changing clothes, or grooming can destroy vital evidence.

Many students worry about reporting crimes to the police because they do no want to testify in a trail. Victims are nevertheless encouraged to at least contact the WNMU Police Department so they can be made aware of other services (counseling services, medical treatment, etc.) that might lessen the trauma of the incident. If the victim does not wish to pursue criminal charges, their wishes will be respected.
