Anonymous Tips


CMU Police DepartmentMake an Online Anonymous Tip.

Do not submit an anonymous tip for emergencies! For an emergency, dial 911 from both on-campus and off-campus locations.

The CMU Police Department provides a confidential method by which individuals can relay valuable information in an anonymous manner. The Department's goal in providing this service is to obtain information on criminal activity that is unattainable through conventional methods and to assist the department in investigating criminal activity that might otherwise go unreported.

In some instances, criminal investigations may be initiated from this information. In other cases, the information may be turned over to Residence Life or the Office of Student Conduct. If information concerning off-campus criminal activity is received, the appropriate police agency will be notified. In all cases, the information received will be thoroughly evaluated and disseminated accordingly.

There are criminal penalties for reporting false information or submitting harassing content.
