Law Enforcement

All individuals are urged to report any conduct that may constitute a crime to law enforcement immediately.  Police have a unique legal authority to seek and execute search warrants, to collect forensic evidence that may have been left at relevant locations, and to make an arrest when there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed.

An individual may pursue either, both, or neither of these options. Reports to the University and law enforcement may be made simultaneously.
