Law Enforcement and Campus Security

Emergency medical assistance and campus safety/law enforcement assistance are available both on and off campus. Individuals are encouraged to contact law enforcement and seek medical treatment as soon as possible following an incident that poses a threat to safety or physical well-being or following a potential criminal offense.

At the Complainant’s request, the Title IX Coordinator(s) will assist the Complainant in contacting campus and/or local law enforcement and will cooperate within the extent permitted by law with law enforcement agencies if a Complainant decides to pursue the criminal process.

Reporting to the UST Police may initiate a criminal investigation into your complaint. The UST Police will also determine if a Timely Warning Notice should be sent out to the community and will capture and count crime data if the offense was reported to have occurred on campus or on a property owned or controlled by the institution. The UST Police will report your complaint to the Title IX Coordinator(s). You can tell the police as much or as little as you would like.
