How to make  a report

Anyone with information about a possible hazing incident has a responsibility to report it to the Department of Public Safety. You can meet with the Hazing Prevention and Leadership Coordinator for assistance in making a report and/or discussing other concerns.

File a hazing concern with the Department of Public Safety by phone or mobile app.

Emergency Phone Numbers

If the hazing is in progress or has just occurred, then DPS should be contacted by dialing the emergency line.

Non-emergency Phone Numbers

If the incident has already occurred and the immediate need for an officer or medical attention does not exist, contact DPS using the non-emergency line.

Using the Mobile Application

LiveSafe is a free downloadable app that mobile users can use to initiate contact with emergency responders.

Information reported to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) is kept private, meaning only individuals who need to have information about the report in order to provide support, investigate, or resolve the matter have access to this information.

While DPS has anonymous reporting options via phone call, text, and through the LiveSafe Mobile App, community members who report concerns are encouraged to provide their contact information. While providing your contact information isn’t mandatory, this may help aid a more detailed investigation and prevent the concern for becoming a cold case.

What to expect

Calls are handled 24/7 by trained dispatchers who will ask questions to ascertain if there is an immediate threat. This will assist them with determining how to proceed in handling the call.

The dispatcher will ask the following:

  • What is the location/ address of the incident?
  • What are you reporting?
  • Any drugs, alcohol, or weapons involved?
  • Does anyone need medical attention?
  • How long ago did the incident occur?
  • How many people are involved?
  • What are the names of those involved?
  • How long has the hazing been going on?
  • Do you know of any other incidents that we should be made aware of?
  • What is your name?
  • What is your callback number?
  • Where can the officer meet with you?

The dispatcher makes the Watch Commander aware of the call. The Watch Commander makes the final determination on the handling of the call.

DPS is aware that a caller may not possess the ability to answer all of these questions. Please answer to the best of your ability and know DPS is there to support you.
