Public Safety Team

Reporting a Crime

All members of the LCU community including students, faculty, staff and visitors are encouraged to report all crimes and suspicious incidents to the LCU Department of Public Safety in a timely manner. Crimes should always be reported to the Lubbock Police and the LCU Department of Public Safety to ensure inclusion in the annual Campus Crime Report, statistics, and to aid LCU Department of Public Safety in providing timely warning information to the campus community when appropriate. 

To report a crime or other emergency, call both,

the Lubbock Police Department:

  • 911 (emergency)
  • 806.775.2865 (non-emergency)

and LCU Department of Public Safety:

  • extension 7520 (campus phone)
  • 806.928.6803 (24-Hour Public Safety Patrol)

If you are the victim of a crime and do not wish to pursue the matter through the criminal justice system or within the university judicial system, you may still want to consider filing a confidential report with the LCU Department of Public Safety.
