UM Police Department
The UM Police Department has sworn officers who are specially trained to respond to emergency and non-emergency reports of sexual misconduct, intimate partner violence, and stalking 24 hours a day. Officers can explain the options for medical exams, counseling, advocacy, and the processes for reporting assaults as crimes.
Contacting the police will be confidential and does not require you to file a report or pursue criminal charges against the offender. The University’s EO/Title IX Coordinator can help you report to law enforcement.
