Crime Reporting Policy
It is the policy of Robert Morris University that all employees of the University considered to be “Campus Security Authority” must report immediately to the Police Department all crimes or reports of criminal activity that are brought to their attention.

Robert Morris University considers all faculty members, administrators, managers, supervisors, employees of the Police Department, and employees with significant contact with students, including but not limited to contact through student campus activities, student discipline, student housing, student life administration and intercollegiate athletics to be “Campus Security Authority.”

Professional mental health, pastoral or other licensed professionals legally bound by professional/ client privileges when functioning in that capacity are not subject to this policy. The University permits the anonymous reporting of crimes. All reported crimes will be investigated by the university and may become a matter of public record.

Student and others are encouraged to report crimes immediately to the Robert Morris University Police Department or to appropriate University employees. Only through your help in promptly reporting criminal activity can the University take effective action to prevent crime
and provide timely warnings of possible danger to the community.
