Reporting Stalking

Reporting Stalking

Stalking can be reported to the Bloomsburg University Police, Student Standards, and the Bloomsburg Police.

  • Find a safe place as soon as possible. The Women's Center, Inc. is a local domestic violence shelter in Bloomsburg, and Beyond Violence is a shelter available in Berwick. Both sites offer case management, counseling, safety planning, and legal advocacy.
  • You may call 911 to report a crime, or if the stalking occurs on campus, you call Bloomsburg University Police (570) 389-4168. Safety personnel can be reached during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at (570) 389-4792 or (570) 389-4775.
  • To consult with the Victim Advocate and to receive information and resources in a confidential manner you may call the Women's Resource Center (x5283). During weekends or weeknights, you may call the Bloomsburg University Police (570) 389-4168 and ask that staff contact the Victim Advocate with a message to call you. The Victim Advocate can speak with you on the phone to provide options about safety planning, shelter, protection orders, police reporting, medical and counseling services, student conduct options, and a variety of other resources.
  • If you have been injured it is important to seek immediate medical attention at a medical provider or an emergency room.
  • If you wish to report to the police, it is important to preserve physical evidence of any assault. Incidents may be reported at the Women’s Center, Inc. You can also access safety planning assistance, protection order assistance, court advocacy, and information about local shelters and counselors at the Women’s Center, Inc.
  • If the stalker is a student, you may also file a complaint through the campus judicial proceedings. In that case, contact Student Standards to file a complaint through the Student Conduct Program. The Victim Advocate can serve as an advisor in this process. A criminal investigation may occur separate from a judicial proceeding on campus if the person who hurt you is a member of Bloomsburg University.

Consider accessing counseling or other support. There are many services available on campus and in the community to support students in crisis.
