Reporting a Crime
Whether you are a victim of a crime or a witness to a crime, call the police to report the incident.
If the crime is in progress and it is safe for you to do so, call the police immediately by dialing 911 in order to increase the chance of the suspect being apprehended.
When you call the police, it is important that you know the street name, address and name of the building where you are located and where you saw the incident.
- Immediately go to a safe place and call the police at 911 (Fire, Medical, Police)
- Provide a description of the incident and remain on the phone until the operator says it is okay.
- If the incident occurred on-campus, call Campus Police at 416.978.2222.
- Call your supervisor, if possible, and inform them of the incident.
What if you see something suspicious?
People are not suspicious, behavior is!
If you notice something suspicious happening on campus contact Campus Police.
Examples of suspicious behavior include:
- Unusual noises, including screaming, sounds of fighting, glass breaking, or illegal activity.
- People in buildings or areas who do not appear to be conducting legitimate business.
- Unauthorized personnel in restricted areas.
- People in the building who appear to be loitering.
- Persons abandoning parcels or other items in unusual locations (i.e. in the lobby or in the elevator)
