It is crucial that you report criminal incidents affecting personal safety, state property, and business to the campus security officers on a timely basis. If you are the victim of any crime or witness a crime, call the security office at 316-293-2662 from any phone. If using a campus phone, you must first dial "9" for an outside line. If the call is a life threatening emergency call 9-9-1-1 to reach police assistance and/or emergency responders.
The campus security officers depend on these reports to allocate its resources most effectively. Therefore, to maximize crime prevention efforts and facilitate the arrest and conviction of criminals, all crime must be promptly reported to the security office. This information goes into monthly and annual reports. Information from these reports as well as from the Wichita Police Department is used by the Campus Security Section to prepare the "Campus Security Report" to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crimes Statistics Act.
Each year, an announcement is made to all employees, faculty, and students providing access to the report.
