Any campus member who is a victim of a crime is also encouraged to report the incident to the Baltimore Police Department.
A crime or incident may also be reported to a campus security authority such as an individual who is responsible for monitoring entrance into institutional property, the Human Resources Office or any official of the institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student center, student housing, student discipline, advisors to students/student organizations, counselors, director of athletics, and campus judicial affairs.

The University Police and the Baltimore Police Department have a mutal aid and working agreement.

University police attend weekly meetings with the BPD to exchange ideas and resolve problems which may be of concern for the campus community.
Any victim of, or witness to, a crime should report the incident to any of the following:
Confidential Report: If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the University System or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. A confidential report, while protecting your identity, affords UB an accurate record of incidents to determine threats to the campus community, and provides an opportunity to take a proactive approach to protecting the campus. Such reports shall be included in the annual crime statistics. You may make a voluntary, confidential report to a professional university counselor at 410-837-5159.
