CRIME PREVENTION AND COMMUNITY EDUCATION
When a criminal act is committed, the OLLU Police Department conducts an extensive investigation. The discovery of any criminal offenses should be reported to the university police. The results of the investigation are provided to the university administration or appropriate law enforcement channels for final disposition. OLLU Police Department personnel make themselves available to all students, faculty and staff members to participate in programs covering such topics as public safety services, crime services, and crime prevention and operation identification.
To report a crime or an emergency on the Our Lady of the Lake University campus, call UPD at extension 4022 or, from outside the University phone system (210) 433-0911. To report a non-emergency or public safety related matter, call UPD at (210) 431-4022.
Other Campus Officials
University Police recognizes that some individuals may be hesitant about reporting crimes to the police, but may be more inclined to report incidents to other campus officials designated as Other Campus Security Officials. Reports of campus crimes can be made to the following Other Campus Security Officials:
Director of Residence Life 210-434-6711, ext. 2313
Human Resources Director (210) 431-3970.
Director of Counseling Services (210) 431-4053
Director of Health Services (210) 431-3919
Vice President of Student Life (210) 431-3902
Director of Mission and Ministry (210) 431-2193
Other Campus Officials may contact University Police for further assistance.
A complainant may request to make a confidential statement to other campus official concerning crimes. The statements made to other campus official are confidential unless they pose a continued threat to the safety of the campus community. When no threat is posed, the only information disclosed is for the purpose of collecting data to be included in the annual crime statistics. A complainant may also make a confidential statement to The Director of Counseling Services (210.431.4053) and/or the Director of Student Health Services (210.431-2296). These officials are exempt from disclosing information to the University Police Department (except by law in cases where there is an immediate threat to the safety of an individual, other person, children or the elderly).
Other Crime Reporting Methods

We live and work in a small community, and we all like to think of it as "home". And, while we would wish otherwise, it is often true that members of our extended family here on campus may cause problems for others. When crimes do occur on campus, several things can be said with absolute certainty of fact:
- Because our campus is small, it is almost certain that someone has either seen the event take place or knows someone who did.
- There is a greater likelihood someone has heard or seen something or someone, which leads them to believe they were either involved or know the persons who were.
- Someone wishes to provide the University Police with information but does not wish to be identified as the party providing the information.
To this end, we have provided a completely anonymous method of contacting the University Police Department to provide timely information.
Whether you saw it, heard it, or heard about it, you may be able to assist us in resolving Campus Crime issues by providing us with information.
If you would like to call in your report please call: (210) 431-4111.
