  • Nature of the situation being reported
  • Location where situation exits
  • Information which permits Security to identify and/or Contact the victim and/or the offender

Make it clear immediately if an offense is in progress, or there is imminent danger, so help can be sent quickly. The caller should stay on the line until the operator ends the call or Security arrives at the scene.
