Crime Prevention

Our Crime Prevention Office acts as the primary liaison between students, faculty and staff, and the UM Police Department. Their goal is to increase community awareness through crime prevention programs, tips, events, and alerts. This works to generate a sense of personal responsibility and awareness in each member of the UM community to reduce criminal opportunities.

Criminal Investigations

Our Criminal Investigation Division (CID) is responsible for investigating all crimes reported to University Police Officers. Crimes are analyzed for solvability (based on witnesses and/or evidence), trends and the criminal's characteristic patterns or "modus operandi."  Often times, the information provided by students, faculty or staff through anonymous "tips," use of the silent witness form, or use of our Crime Stoppers program, has enabled the Criminal Investigations Division to apprehend responsible individual(s). Many crimes investigated by CID are "crimes of opportunity." These crimes often involve unattended property or unlocked doors to offices, dorms and vehicles. Valuable property should always be kept secure and out of sight.
