Crime Stoppers (Completely Anonymous)

USC is partnered with the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers which consists of various law enforcement agencies throughout the county of Los Angeles. The purpose of Crime Stoppers is to prevent and reduce crime, by forming a partnership among the community, law enforcement and the media to offer anonymity and cash rewards to anyone providing information leading to an arrest, making the community a safer place for all who live or work in the region.

  • All tips are handled by a third party service provider
  • You will never have physical contact with any law enforcement agency
  • Communication is done by a encrypted chat using a code and password
  • Up to a $1,000.00 reward can be collected anonymously

Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy. Click here to learn more.

Bias/Hate Crime Report

The University of Southern California does not tolerate acts of bias within its community, and members of the Trojan Family are expected to be respectful and inclusive. All incidents of bias, hate crimes, and hate incidents are considered a serious breach of our community expectations (Principles of Community) and need to be reported allowing for appropriate investigation and response.
