The Mount St. Joseph Police Department (“MSJ Police Department”) is a commissioned law enforcement agency by the State of Ohio and is in charge of the safety and security of all University students, employees, and visitors.
You can find the MSJ Police Department on the Ground Floor of the Seton Center (to the left of Market C). The MSJ Police Department is available 24 hours, 365 days a year.
To reach the MSJ Police Department, dial 0, 4200, or 4226 from any campus phone. Or by calling 513-244-4226, or for immediate attention dial 911.
All emergencies or unusual activity should be reported immediately to the Department of Public Safety & Campus Police. After being notified, we will dispatch appropriate personnel and emergency equipment to the scene.
Anonymous reports of any possible non-emergent crime and any possible University policy violation can be made by calling or texting 513-244-TIPS or emailing 244TIPS@msj.edu, the University’s anonymous reporting resource.
This ‘tip” line was developed to promote the welfare of the campus community through an additional reporting source that is anonymous. Calls and texts to 244-TIPS can be made 24/7. 244-TIPS should not be used to report any emergency. In all emergencies, continue to call 911 or contact the MSJ Police Department, dial 0, 4200, or 4226 from any campus phone or by calling 513-244-4226
The 244-TIPS anonymous reporting option is not available for MSJ employees regarding possible violations of the Sex Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, and Interpersonal Violence Policy or the Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy. Under The Clery Act, all MSJ employees are considered “responsible employees” under Title IX and “campus security authorities.” Therefore, all MSJ employees have a legal duty to promptly report alleged policy violations directly to the Title IX Coordinator or the Equal Opportunity Officer.
