Crime Prevention & Resources
If you witness a crime:
If you witness a crime or become the victim of a crime, call 911 to report the incident to Moorhead Police.
If you observe a person commit a crime, do not block their avenue of escape. Instead, get a good description of the person, note their direction of travel, and obtain vehicle information if pertinent.
Do not follow the person. Let the person leave the scene. If followed, the person may panic and cause you harm.
Personal Safety Tips
Do not let people into a locked building or office unless you work with them or they have been properly identified. If the person gives you any problems, call Public Safety (218.477.2449).
In the event that a suspicious person is seen roaming around, or suspicious calls are received, contact Public Safety immediately.
Always keep the door to your room locked when you are working alone.
Don't investigate a suspicious person or noise outside by yourself.
Keep a list of emergency numbers with you. Add Public Safety (218.477.2449) to your cell phone speed dial.
Never walk alone at night. Let someone know where you are going. Walk in an alert and confident manner, and actively pay attention to your surroundings.
Be alert. If you are being followed, head quickly to a lighted area, building or group of people.
Choose the best lit, most traveled paths when walking. Avoid walking or jogging alone at night, particularly in isolated area with limited lighting.
Do not prop open exterior doors that are supposed to be locked.
