Tips When Reporting Incidents

USask safety officers patrol the campus on foot, bike and in marked patrol vehicles 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A reminder to all members of the university community that suspicious activity on campus can be reported immediately to Protective Services at 306-966-5555.

Here are a few tips to use when placing a call to Protective Services.



  • Do not confront the subject or subjects.
  • Try to provide Protective Services with a physical description of the subject; scars, facial hair and tattoos help identify subjects.
  • Include detailed clothing descriptions of what the subject was wearing, such as, a red shirt, blue cap, white shoes.
  • Inform Protective Services of any vehicles that were involved and their description. Vehicle descriptions are very important; licence plate number, make of vehicle, colour, condition of the vehicle and any bumper stickers or distinguishing items on the vehicle.
  • Stay on the telephone as long as possible with Protective Services.
  • Provide a name and call back number for Protective Services to use in case they need to contact you for further information or in case your call is disconnected.

Protective Services are highly trained individuals who, work closely with the campus community, Saskatoon Police Service and other agencies to maintain a safe campus.

USask is committed to creating and maintaining a safe environment for working and learning that is free of discrimination and harassment. The Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Policy applies to all members of the university community including individuals employed directly or indirectly at the university, students, volunteers and visitors.


We encourage anyone who experiences or witnesses suspicious activity or crimes on campus to immediately call Protective Services for assistance at 306-966-5555.
