If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action through Temple’s Student Conduct Code (PDF, Download of Adobe® Reader® required) or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report.
Temple Police can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. This allows the university to keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine crime patterns in a particular area, and alert the campus community to potential danger. The university will not tolerate retaliation against students and employees who make good faith reports of crime.
Confidential reports of crime may be made by calling 215 204-6493 (available 24 hours), by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or on Campus Safety Services’ website on the Submit a Tip link.
