Silent Witness

Duke’s Silent Witness program will provide the Duke community with a way to anonymously report criminal and suspicious activity to Duke police through the website. Silent Witness reports will be anonymous and routed to the investigations unit.  Please note that the Silent Witness program is not meant as a substitute for crimes in progess or for crimes that present a continuing threat to the community:  in such cases, dial 911 to report those crimes immediately.

Note: to make a standard incident report, include your name and contact information in the appropriate boxes below or call Duke Police at 919-684-2444 or report in person at 502 Oregon Street, Durham, NC 27705.

Confidential reports can also be made through CrimeStoppers, which provides monetary rewards for tips leading to an arrest and indictment of felony crime offenders.
