USF Public Safety Launches "EyeWitness"


The Division of Public Safety has installed the Rave Mobile Safety software component called "EyeWitness" as an added feature to MoBull, USF’s Emergency Notification System. This software solution allows registered University of South Florida System MoBull users (students, faculty and staff) the ability to send anonymous crime tips and reports to the University Police via text messaging.


Although the tip appears as plain text at the University Police dispatch console, the tipster’s identity is encrypted and protected.  Eyewitness offers tipsters anonymity, allowing students, faculty and staff to discretely provide timely, critical information without letting those in his/her vicinity in on the communication.  University Police can continue to communicate with the tipster via text messaging through the console software.


To report a crime tip, text: USFTIP - space - your message. Then send to 67283. Please note standard text messaging rates apply based on your individual plan.


USF is committed to providing a safe campus environment. EyeWitness is a tool that gives students, faculty and staff an easy and confidential way to report criminal activity to help keep USF safe!
