Public Safety Officers are available to take reports from anyone who is a victim of, or a witness to, a crime committed on Augsburg’s campus. Officers are also available to take reports from anyone who experiences a campus policy violation. Reports can be filed with the Department of Public Safety (DPS) 24 hours a day.
Making a report does not necessarily require follow-up with or by Augsburg’s conduct process nor with any law enforcement agencies. You are not required to contact DPS, but making a report with an officer is very helpful in preventing crime at Augsburg and, if possible, identifying perpetrators.
If the incident is an emergency or the incident is happening “right now,” you should contact DPS at (612) 330-1717 or call 9-1-1. Following a report, officers will initiate any necessary follow-up with, and/or assist people with contacting the appropriate law enforcement agency.
Federal law requires schools to report statistical information regarding certain types of crimes. This information is maintained on our Crime Alerts and Logs page. We also provide a daily crime log with brief summaries of Clery reportable incidents.
