How to Report a Crime

You may report crime to the University Police in a number of different ways.

You may call the campus emergency line by dialing 8000 from an on-campus phone.  If calling from your cell or home phone, call 828-262-8000. 

You may report crime or suspicious activity by stopping at our offices, currently located in the Rivers Street Parking Deck. Our professional and courteous staff is ready to assist you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including Holidays.

You may report a crime or suspicious activity online, without giving us your name, by clicking here.

Finally, you may also anonymously report a crime or suspicious activity through Watauga County Crime Stoppers.  Crime Stoppers may pay up to $1,000.00 cash for information that leads to the arrest of anyone who commits a crime, that leads to the recovery of stolen property, seizure of drugs, or the location of wanted persons.
To anonymously report a crime to Crime Stoppers, call 828-268-6959.

Reports of crimes made to other campus officials, such as the staff of Residence Life, professors and counselors should also be referred to the University Police. Crimes reported to the University Police will be investigated and the perpetrator(s) will either be prosecuted, referred to the Office of Student Judicial Affairs for discipline under the Student Code of Conduct, or both.
