The Department of Safety maintains a "silent witness" feature (Anonymous Report form) which allows students or employees to report crimes without providing their names or other identifying information. The information provided regarding crimes (to include harassment, theft, etc.) is received by the Director of Safety and designated Safety personnel. Anonymous reporting is not intended for non-criminal code of conduct violations (smoking, visitation violations, etc.); if these types of behaviors are occurring, please contact your RA and RD.
Upon receipt, all information is thoroughly investigated to the best of the department’s ability, based on information received. Information sent through this site, while checked on a regular basis, is not monitored 24 hours a day. Therefore, the Silent Witness form SHOULD NOT be used for emergencies that require immediate response or those that are life threatening in nature.
Silent Witness is intended to foster and maintain a safe and caring community. Therefore, if it is discovered this system is being used to harass or to retaliate against members of the Messiah University community, behavioral conduct consequences will be pursued.
