Crimes should be reported to the Department of Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness to aid in providing timely Campus Safety Notifications and to ensure inclusion in annual crime statistics.
Every member of the Saint Louis University community is encouraged to take an active role in reporting hazardous conditions, criminal activity or any emergency. Any time immediate response is needed or a person is unsure of whom to call, the Department of Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness (DPSEP) can be contacted by phone at 977-3000 or in person at The Wool Center, Room 129. DPSEP will contact fire, ambulance or police; DPSEP public safety dispatchers will dispatch DPSEP personnel to the scene of an incident; and make other notifications, as needed. As deemed appropriate, an emergency notification or timely warning of a crime that poses an ongoing threat to the University community will be initiated.
Emergency phones are located around campus - on parking lots, in garages and along walkways. The emergency phones will connect you directly to DPSEP.
