Eyewitness Text Tips
In an effort to provide the University community with a way to make anonymous crime tips, the University of St. Thomas Police Department is pleased to announce the addition of the Eyewitness Text Tip. This will allow anyone with information about a crime in progress or a crime that has already been reported to provide anonymous information to the Police Department. It is simple, all you do is store the number 67283 in your cell phone, then begin the text message with USTTIP {space} and begin your message. You will receive a confirmation text back that your tip was received.

However, if it is an emergency or you need immediate assistance, you should dial 911 from any campus phone or 713-525-3888 to report the emergency to the UST Police Department.
