Silent Witness

Because our campus is small, it is almost certain that someone has either seen an event take place or knows someone who did. There is also a greater likelihood that someone has heard or seen something or someone which leads them to believe they are involved or know the persons who are.

We understand that people may feel uncomfortable reporting crimes or incidents to us face-to-face, therefore we offer this program to anyone who has witnessed, or knows about, a crime committed on the USF campus.

Please complete the form below with any information you feel may be useful to us in keeping the campus safe and secure. It is important that you provide as much detail as possible. We will try to protect your identity to the fullest extent possible. We appreciate your assistance in helping us protect the USF campus.
