Under the federal law entitled "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act," statistics regarding major crimes "reported" to campus security authorities must be published for the past three calendar years. A crime is "reported" when it is brought to the attention of a campus security authority or the local police. It is not necessary for the crime to have been investigated by the police or campus security, nor must a finding of guilt or responsibility be made. Information in this report was obtained from the files of the Office of Safety and Security, the Office of Student Affairs and the law enforcement agencies that surround our main campus & alternate sites. The reported crimes and relevant statistics are available in the office of the Dean of Students.
