Filing a Criminal Report

Report an incident of sexual or interpersonal misconduct to the LMU Department of Public Safety, or directly to the Los Angeles Police Department (or the applicable law enforcement agency).

If a student reports an incident of sexual or interpersonal misconduct to the Department of Public Safety, DPS will contact law enforcement (typically LAPD) to send an officer to campus to offer the student the opportunity to file a criminal report, launching a formal criminal investigation. DPS and law enforcement officials will assist you in filing an official report, collecting evidence and statements for a criminal case.

The student has the right to decline reporting to law enforcement; however, the student may choose to file at a later time. The student may choose to pursue a complaint through the University judicial process even if they decline to file a report with law enforcement.
