Community involvement in the manner in which police services are provided is the key to any quality Community Oriented Policing program. The prompt, informative and responsible reporting of criminal incidents, suspicious persons and vehicles to University Police by community members is essential to an effective and efficient response to these incidents.
While we urge community stakeholders to contact us, we also realize and recognize an individual's need to remain anonymous sometimes and apart from the law enforcement process.
Please feel free to forward your information to us, knowing that it will be held in the strictest of confidence.
Unless citizens report crimes promptly, and participate and support crime prevention efforts, the criminal justice system will operate under a severe handicap. If crimes are never reported, little can be done to help stop other community members from becoming victims.
The University community can be much safer with your help! The likelihood of arresting an offender decreases with each passing day that a crime goes unreported.
ALL INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL!
If a member of the University community observes any behavior that is concerning and that needs to be brought to the attention of the TAMUG CARE Team, individuals may report the behavior using the online incident report or by contacting one of the CARE Team members during business hours.
This is not a system to be used for emergencies. If you are in an emergency situation that requires medical, psychological or police services, call 911.
