Policies for Preparing the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics

Regarding the annual disclosure of crime statistics, the Chief of Public Safety is responsible for distributing an annual notice to all students and employees describing where and how the University's annual security report can be obtained. The Human Resources Department is responsible to provide notice to all prospective employees and the Admissions Departments are responsible for all prospective students.

The University's annual crime statistics are available electronically. A paper copy will be provided to a requestor. All requests can be made to the Department of Public Safety, Student Affairs, Human Resources, or Admissions Offices. An annual notice is also distributed to all students and employees regarding the availability and location to obtain the University's annual security report.

On an annual basis, the Director of Public Safety is responsible for gathering and submitting the crime statistics for the campus. They will make requests from the Vice President/Dean of Student Affairs, counselors, chaplain, and/or other pertinent campus security authorities to obtain the applicable crime statistics.
