Telephone Harassment

Harassing Telephone Calls From Off Campus

The AT&T Annoyance Call Bureau has the responsibility to assist the Notre Dame Police Department in the investigation of threatening, obscene or harassing telephone calls that are made from off campus. These types of calls are illegal under Indiana Criminal Code 35-45-2-2.

AT&T Annoyance Call Bureau (AABC)
Monday - Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
1-(800) 769-4099

If the harassing phone calls continue and you expect more to be received, you should report the calls to the Notre Dame Police Department at (574) 631-5555. It is important to take note of the case number once you have filed the report with NDPD. When you contact the AT&T Annoyance Call Bureau, they will ask you a series of questions, including the case number of the Notre Dame Police Department report that you filed, along with the contact person's name and phone number at the department.

In order for the telephone company to "trace" illegal telephone calls that you may be receiving, you MUST contact the Annoyance Call Bureau at their 1-(800) telephone number listed above. It is important for you to understand that the telephone company cannot trace any phone calls you receive without the Annoyance Call Bureau first setting up a telephone trap. Once they have set up the trap, all future calls that you receive will be captured by the Annoyance Call Bureau special equipment that will provide the telephone number of the calling party. The Annoyance Call Bureau will give you instruction on how to report future calls to them.
