The University of Oklahoma Police Department

The OU Police Department has received complaints of fraudulent activity associated with the department’s phone number, (405) 325-1911. The caller claims to be part of the police department and requests money and forms of identification.


Please know that a law enforcement officer or representative from a police department will never call you and ask you to send money. If someone calls you from an official number, such as the OU Police Department, asking for money, this is a scam, also called spoofing.


Spoofing is a very common type of scam carried out by cybercriminals. According to the FBI, spoofing is when a criminal “disguises an email address, sender name, phone number, or website URL—often just by changing one letter, symbol, or number—to convince you that you are interacting with a trusted source.”


If you receive a call from someone who identifies themselves as an OU Police officer or other person identifying themself as being with a legitimate organization and you have questions about the authenticity that person’s identity, please hang up and call them back using a valid number found on their website. If a suspicious call comes from the OU Police Department, call back at (405) 325-1911.
