Find Help On Campus

Law Enforcement

Certain forms of misconduct covered by these policies would also be a violation of criminal law. An individual has the option of filing a criminal complaint, and may do so with the Campus Police Department, which is located in Admin Annex #115 and can be reached by telephone at (724) 830-4999 or extension x4999 from a campus phone. Campus Police are obligated to report incidents to the Title IX Coordinator. 

The Campus Police Department is staffed seven days per week, 24 hours per day. After business hours (5:00 pm - 8:00 am), the Resident Director on duty can be contacted at (724) 433-3942 and may be able to accompany you for support in reporting to law enforcement, or in seeking medical attention, after business hours, even if you are not a resident in University housing. A criminal complaint may also be lodged with the Greensburg City Police Department, who can be reached at (724) 834-3800. You can also contact the PA State Police at (724) 832-3288. Always call 911 in the case of an emergency.

Reporting to the Title IX Coordinator does not obligate the individual to report to the police, nor does reporting to the police obligate someone to file a formal complaint under these policies – these are separate processes. University and criminal processes can occur simultaneously or independently. If an individual would like to notify law enforcement, the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) can assist with that notification. The University encourages those who have experienced sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking to report those matters to the police.

Medical professionals at hospitals have their own rules for reporting and confidentiality. Usually, law enforcement is called when a rape is reported but you do not have to speak to the police. Victims of sexual violence are encouraged to seek medical attention as soon as possible to treat physical injuries, preserve evidence for a criminal complaint, and have a rape kit performed. A medical advocate from the Blackburn Center (see below) is available to be with you throughout the entire process. If the hospital has not called an advocate, please request that they do so.
