Found items should be reported to USI Public Safety immediately. Items can be brought to the USI Public Safety Building or you can contact the USI Public Safety Office at 812-464-1845 and an officer will be dispatched to collect the item. DO NOT delay in reporting a found item or store the item at your work area for an extended period of time.
