    E-Reporting through our “Silent Witness” Anonymous Reporting System

    Use the Silent Witness Program if you know of a crime that has occurred or is occurring on campus and you want to report it anonymously (use the links below). This system is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but should not be utilized in immediate emergencies, or to report non-life threatening incidents like residence hall room lock outs, larcenies, loud noise complaints, etc.

    If you need immediate service to report incidents like a lock out, larceny, loud noise complaint, or other non-life threatening incidents, please call the Department of Public Safety at 315.443.2224.

    As always, if you have an emergency situation on campus, please dial 711 from any campus phone, or #SU (#78) from AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint cell phones.
