Department of Public Safety

File a Report

All members of the Truman State University community are encouraged to report any crime committed on campus to the Department of Public Safety by calling 911 if any person, animal, or property is in immediate danger. Otherwise, it’s recommended to call the non-emergency number, 660-665-5621.

Reported calls are investigated and referred to the appropriate department or office for action. A Silent Witness Program is available for those who wish to remain anonymous.

A Bias-Related Incident is any act that appears and or is perceived by the targeted person as motivated, at least in part, by hostility toward the target person or an entire group because of their actual or perceived identity/traits. Not all acts of bias violate University policy or law.

The online reporting system is intended for non-emergency incidents in which the suspect is not known. So, if you or someone else saw who did this, or any person, animal, or property is in immediate danger call 9-1-1 immediately!
