Malicious Telephone Call Trace


How to Trace a Harassing Telephone Call on Campus:

In our continuing effort to increase the safety and security of everyone here at Monmouth University, the phone system has been equipped with “Malicious Call Trace.” This service gives administrators, staff, faculty members, and resident students the ability to trace a harassing telephone call.

If you feel you are being harassed during a telephone call, do the following while speaking to the caller:

  • Depress the switch-hook slightly (just like you would to activate call waiting).
  • Press * 9 9.
  • Return to the caller for a moment and hang up.
  • Contact the Monmouth University Police Department at 732-571-4444 and report the harassing call to the dispatcher. An officer will respond to your location immediately to take a report.
