Reporting Crime

If you observe a crime in progress, a life-threatening situation, injury, or act of violence:

  • Immediately notify Security Services (3311) or Tacoma Police (911).
  • Be prepared to provide descriptive suspect information, including:
    • Height/weight
    • Hair color/length
    • Facial hair or unusual physical characteristics
    • Glasses
    • Clothing color/style (hat, jacket, shoes)
    • Any property in possession (backpack, etc.)
  • Do not intervene unless necessary to protect yourself or others.
  • Use your best judgment based upon the circumstances, such as fleeing the area if possible or securing yourself in a protected area.
