Earlier, the University informed students, faculty and staff about a reported robbery said to have occurred in Gallucci Hall on Wednesday night.

We take all reports of crime and safety-related incidents very seriously, and our response to this report has been comprehensive. Today, our police are following up on a number of leads, security has been increased, and our officers and other university professionals are assisting the victims.

If you have information that may assist police, please call them at any hour at 330-972-2911.

Alternatively, you can submit a tip confidentially by texting it to 274637 (CRIMES), and beginning the message with the keyword ZIPTIP. You also may submit a tip confidentially online to provide more detailed information, including images.

Your safety is of paramount importance. Since 2007, we have taken a number of steps to enhance safety on and near campus:

  • We have increased the number of UA police officers by 20 percent. The officers patrol campus and the neighborhoods near campus at all hours.
  • We have set up a cell-phone alert service for when major events occur. Sign up today for Z-AlertZ-Alert is also available via Twitter.
  • In coordination with city police, special police operations (often in plainclothes) have been set up in the neighborhoods near campus at times when criminal activity seems to occur.
  • Extensive lighting is found throughout the campus, and the university continues to implement lighting improvement projects and to consider public safety in maintaining its buildings and grounds.

Police encourage you to keep these points in mind:

  • Use the campus patrol service. Patrol members will escort students between campus locations from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly during the fall and spring semesters. Call 330-972-7263 to request the service.
  • Program the University's emergency line into your cell phone: 330-972-2911. Or call 9-1-1. In addition, there are 250 emergency blue-light phones on campus connected directly to police dispatch.
  • Notify the UAPD if you notice anything suspicious or unusual. Call the department at 330-972-2911 (or 9-1-1 in an emergency) at any hour. "It's amazing how often small tips from everyday people add up to something we can use," said University Police Chief Paul Callahan. "Students should not be shy about calling. We value every call."
  • Going downtown on a weekend night? Consider using UA's free shuttle service.
