To help maintain a safe and secure campus environment, all crimes should be reported as soon as possible to the University of Oregon Police Department or the Eugene Police Department.
Prompt reports aids law enforcement officers in the investigation and apprehension of perpetrators, and allows law enforcement to put resources where they are most needed.
Working with the Eugene Police Department, the University of Oregon Police Department submits incident reports to the Area Informational Records System (AIRS), a law enforcement database system that agencies in Lane County access for records management. Serial numbers of stolen property from campus are reported through the National Crime Information Center. Faculty, staff and students should be aware of crime to take steps that may help avoid becoming a victim of similar crimes. Information on campus crime can be found at police.uoregon.edu/crime.
To Report Crime
For emergencies, life-threatening situations, or crimes in progress, call 9-1-1 on or off campus. Non-emergency assistance and information is available on campus by calling UOPD at 541-346-2919. Off-campus, for non-emergencies or to report past crimes, call Eugene Police at 541-682-5111.
UOPD provides online non-emergency crime report form below for the campus community. Report criminal activity that has occurred on campus and is not currently in progress, such as assault, theft, drugs, or vandalism.
Within 48 hours of submitting an online crime report, a UOPD officer will contact you to verify the report details and ask any question if necessary. Please provide proper contact information is to ensure that the report can be filed. Online reports are not official reports. Only the printed copy, signed by the reporting officer and containing a Department issued case number, are considered the official copy.

An official report will be prepared and submitted by the officer through the reporting system.
Sex Offense Reporting
When a sex offense is committed, it is imperative that the victim-survivor file a report as soon as possible with the University of Oregon Police Department or the Eugene Police Department. Preserving any physical evidence is necessary for successful investigation, arrest, and prosecution of the perpetrator(s). If the victim-survivor requires support services, UOPD coordinates with the Office of Student Life, the Office of Human Resources, the Student Health Center, the University Counseling Center, and other community resources. After an assault, UOPD can provide appropriate academic and living changes, counseling services, employee assistance programs, and support from the victims' assistance program at the district attorney's office. If another student commits the offense, the victim-survivor can report it to the Office of Student Life instead of the Eugene Police Department. The conduct coordinator then investigates the complaint and pursues sanction under the University of Oregon Code of Student Conduct. Possible sanctions include expulsion, suspension, negative notation on academic record, disciplinary probation, restitution, community service, loss of privileges, conduct reprimand, suspended sanction, and revocation of degree. As part of the student conduct code adjudication process, the accuser and the accused are entitled to have others present during a campus disciplinary proceeding. Additional information concerning the conduct code process can be obtained from the Office of Student Life.
