Harassment can occur in person, telephone, letter and email.  Anyone threatening to cause injury or death to another person or cause damage to their property is committing a criminal offense.  Threats of death are taken very seriously by the University and are a criminal offense.  These are to be reported immediately to York University Security Services and/or Toronto Police for investigation.

If you receive a threatening telephone call, letter or email,

  • Usually the sender is anticipating a reaction from you. Do not overreact. Remain calm.
  • Report the incident immediately to Security Services at extension 33333 or 416-736-5333.  If a suspect is known, this information should be reported to the police.
  • Never blow a whistle or yell into the telephone. The caller will know you are angry and the frequency of the calls may increase.
  • Save any recorded messages, keep original letters and envelopes and limit the handling of these items for evidentiary purpose.
  • Do not delete computer files or voice mail messages until the police have examined them.
