Crime Statistics

Annual Crime Statistics

Each month all campus crime statistics are submitted to the Uniform Crime Reporting Bureau, Crime Records Division in Austin, Texas, which uses the FBI's "Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook" as its guide. All crimes and arrest described in the Campus Security Act of 1990 are incorporated into this report. The prompt reporting of campus crimes is encouraged through the campus newspaper, the STUDENT HANDBOOK, emergency telephone numbers in all campus buildings, officer briefings of residence hall supervisors and resident assistants, and daily contact by the officers with the campus population. Not only is the reporting of crime encouraged, but incidents which may affect security at some future date are recorded. Reports of crimes in other jurisdictions are furnished immediately to those authorities, and in turn local and county authorities immediately advise Department of Public Safety of problems on campus.
