Crime Statistics

Crime Statistics

Campus crime statistics for the past three years are listed in the Campus Safety Handbook and are also available at the Campus Safety Office. The Office of Campus Safety is responsible for compiling annual statistical information. All members of the University community are encouraged to report crime incident information to Campus Safety. Campus Safety investigates all reported incidents to substantiate those incidents and minimize double reporting. Crimes are classified through the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook, Federal Bureau of Investigation.
