Crime Reporting It is the policy of Northwestern University to ensure that the victims and witness to crimes are aware of their right to report criminal acts to the Northwestern University Police Department (847-491-3456). CSA’s should ask reporting party if they would like to report the crime to University Police. If the reporting party wants University Police contacted, the CSA should contact University Police and if the CSA can verify that University Police responded and took a police report, then it is not necessary for the CSA to complete and submit this form. However, if the CSA can’t verify that University Police responded and took a police report, then the CSA must complete and submit this form.
Anonymity If a crime reporting party request anonymity, this request must be honored to the extent permitted by law. Accordingly, no information should be included on this form that would personally identify the victim without his/her consent.
Sexual incidents CSA’s reporting a victim (student) reported incidence of sexual violence or harassment are encouraged to print and provide the reporting student with the CARE Resource Information Sheet.
CSA's reporting a victim (employee) reported incidence of sexual violence or harassment are encouraged to print and provide the reporting employee with the Employee Resource Information Sheet.
