Reporting Campus Crime

Lynchburg College students, faculty, staff, and visitors are encouraged to report promptly and accurately all campus crimes and incidents related to public safety to Campus Safety and Security and to appropriate police agencies.

To report a crime or other emergency occurring on campus, contact Campus Safety and Security:

  • in person at the Information Desk (located on the first floor of Hall Campus Center);
  • by using an emergency phone;
  • by dialing 434.544.8100 in non-emergency situations; and
  • by dialing 434.544.5555 when emergency assistance is needed.

The Lynchburg Police Department and other city emergency services can be reached by dialing 911. If emergency services are needed on campus in Lynchburg, contact Campus Safety and Security first so that a campus security officer and Lynchburg College Emergency Medical Services (EMS) may be dispatched to the scene of the emergency while city emergency personnel are en route to campus.

Due to the importance of campus safety, Lynchburg College cannot guarantee that crime information will remain confidential. If requested or deemed appropriate by the College, efforts will be made to keep private the details of the crime that are sensitive in nature and/or not to reveal the identity or sources of crime information. The College does not accept anonymous crime reports for inclusion in annual crime statistics.
