Reporting Procedures

Help others by reporting any information you have about an incident.

Community members, students, faculty, staff and visitors who may be a victim of a crime, observe a crime or a suspicious incident, an incident of domestic violence, dating violence or stalking, or if you see what you believe to be a security problem or other emergency on the Garden City campus, you are encouraged to notify the Department of Public Safety and Transportation immediately by dialing 5 or ext. 3507 or 3511 from any in-house telephone, utilize any blue light emergency call box, pick up any red phone, contact any public safety officer or respond to the Public Safety Command Center located on the west side of Levermore Hall. To contact Public Safety via a cell phone, please call 516.877.3511. When calling, stay on the line until told to hang up and as accurately as possible, tell the dispatcher everything you can remember about the incident (e.g., sex of suspect, the suspect’s clothing, vehicle, direction of travel, etc.). The Adelphi community is encouraged to program the Public Safety telephone number into their phones in case of an emergency.

Below are contact instructions for reporting an incident if you are one of the Center locations.

Location On Campus

Hauppauge Center Call 631.300.4367 or 516.237.8605 or contact the public safety officer located in the lobby Call 911
Manhattan Center Call 212.965.8340 or contact the contract security officer located at the main entry to the Adelphi area on the second floor Call 911
Hudson Valley Center Call 845.471.3348 or contact the contract officer at the main entry to the Adelphi area located on the fourth floor Call 911

One may choose to call 911 to report emergencies that require immediate response from police, fire, medical or other emergency units at any location. Be specific relative to your location. Specify that you are at Adelphi University with a specific building location (e.g., Blodgett Hall room 201).

While the Department of Public Safety and Transportation and its personnel are responsible for ensuring that our campuses remain as safe as possible, the primary responsibility for crime prevention and personal safety rests with each individual. Each of us must take personal responsibility for our own safety, as well as for the safety of those around us. Adelphi University encourages accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to the campus public safety and the appropriate police agencies, when the victim of a crime elects to, or is unable to, make such a report.
