If I lock the keys inside my automobile or need a jumpstart, are Public Safety officers
able to assist me?
Due to liability and the complex airbag systems in modern automobiles, DPSS officers

to retrieve your keys. However, we can jumpstart your battery if it is dead.
I had something stolen on campus. What do I need to do?
Immediately notify the Department of Public Safety and report the offense. Come to
the office and provide a complete statement. If a crime scene exists, an officer will
come and investigate. It is helpful to have the serial numbers and the costs of large
items. We can also assist you with the filing of a Citizens Crime Report with the
Tulsa Police Department.
If I am involved in an accident while driving through a university lot, what do I
need to do?
Immediately call ORU Security and report the collision. If possible, do not move the
vehicles. An officer will arrive and make a complete accident report. You may have
your insurance company request a copy of the report after three working days if your
agent submits a request on letterhead stationery. He may fax his request to 918.495.7673.
Where do I go to pay a traffic citation?
All parking fines, except for immobilization fines, are paid at Student Accounts,
located on the west side of the Graduate Center Building room GC2D-01.
Fines for immobilization should be paid at the Department of Safety & Security with
cash or check made payable to ORU. This fine can not be charged to your account.
