Reporting a Crime
In case of emergency call 817-272-3003 or 911.
The University of Texas at Arlington Police Department (UTAPD) encourages accurate and prompt reporting of all criminal offenses.
To report a criminal incident or emergency on campus, call 817-272-3381. Police Communications Officers (PCO) are accessible 24 hours a day to answer your call. In response to a call, the PCO will take the information, send an officer, and, if necessary, contact the emergency personnel from other agencies such as the fire department or ambulance service. If necessary, the officer will complete a police report after action has been taken. When deemed appropriate, reports of criminal offenses are forwarded to the Criminal Investigations. To check on the progress of an investigation, please contact 817-272-0895.
Officers are dispatched on a priority basis according to the seriousness of the calls received. Calls of an emergency nature are dispatched immediately. A person reporting a non-emergency incident may expect to experience a short delay.
Emergency call boxes, phones, and panic buttons are located in most campus buildings and all campus parking lots. Currently, there are 82 blue emergency call boxes (tested weekly), 227 emergency call phones installed throughout the campus and elevators (tested weekly), and 55 panic buttons located in numerous offices/classrooms on campus (tested quarterly). These emergency devices are linked directly with the police dispatcher.
Emails to firstname.lastname@example.org aren't monitored continuously. Any report of criminal activity, suspicious circumstances, etc. should be made to the police emergency or non-emergency numbers.

If you have seen a crime on campus or have been a victim of a crime on campus and would like to report it anonymously, complete the Silent Witness form. All information will remain confidential; this report will not have your return email address on it.
All crimes should be reported to UTAPD to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate.
There are no formal policies that encourage pastoral counselors and professional counselors to inform the persons they are counseling to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics.
