Reporting Options: Filing an Anonymous Police Report

  • Anonymous reports exist for the purpose of collecting statistical information that can increase awareness of the number of incidents of sexual assault that occur on campus.
  • Anonymous reports will not initiate a police investigation. Due to anonymity, UPD cannot follow up with the survivor or offer services.
  • The identity of the survivor will not be known to UPD and the suspect will not be notified that a report was filed.
  • To file an anonymous report, you can contact the HSU Police Department in the following ways:
    • Electronically, by clicking on the Anonymous Tips link;
    • By mail at:
