Silent Witness Program
Community involvement is the key to any quality Community Oriented Policing Program. Prompt, informative and responsible reporting of criminal incidents and suspicious activity by the community is essential to an effective and efficient response to these incidents. We urge the campus community to contact the University Police if they witness a crime or have been a victim of a crime.
We realize and recognize an individual’s need to remain anonymous. Therefore, you can report criminal incidents and/or suspicious activity anonymously by completing a form on the University Police Web site, or by calling the anonymous hotline at 219-989-2912.
ALERT ME!, PUC’s newly developed text messaging service provides the capability to communicate brief, urgent information /notifications that affect the status of campus operations to students, faculty, staff and the community.
Anyone who wishes to receive ALERT ME! notification can subscribe by completing a form on the ALERT ME! Web site .
Please note — – your cellular provider may charge you for text messages based on your provider-customer agreement. Also, please check with your cellular provider to ensure your phone can receive text messages.
In addition to an initial text message upon subscription and emergency notifications, a test text message will be sent three times a year — at the beginning of each semester — for testing.
For additional information, visit the ALERT ME! Web site Frequently Asked Questions.
Snow and Ice Storm Emergency
The decision to interrupt normal campus operations means either of the following conditions is in effect:

- The University is Closed This means that ALL on and off-campus functions, services, programs and activities are canceled that day. The campus is considered closed to all persons except those assisting in emergency operations. Consequently, all persons except emergency personnel are required to immediately leave the campus.
