Criminal Behavior

Criminal behavior refers to conduct of an offender that leads to and includes the commission of an unlawful act. Criminal behavior is broad and can range from a shooting to theft.

Members of the USF community are asked to help make campus safe by avoiding risks, being alert at all times, and promptly reporting suspicious or unsafe situations.

If you are a victim or witness to any on-campus offense, promptly notify campus police at 9-1-1 and report the incident. Include the following:

  • Nature of the incident
  • Location of the incident
  • Description of person(s) involved
  • Description of property involved

If you observe a suspicious person on campus, immediately notify campus police and report what you observed. If calling 9-1-1 may place you in an unsafe situation, you can also anonymously report suspicious activity using the USFSafe App. Assist officers when they arrive by providing all additional information and ask others to cooperate.

Should gunfire or discharged explosives jeopardize the campus, take cover immediately using all available concealment. When reasonably safe, contact campus police immediately by calling 9-1-1.
