Campus Safety Report

The University’s annual Campus Safety Report is the result of the efforts of many people. Each year individuals and organizations, both on and off campus, in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, submit their data for inclusion in the annual crime statistics. No formal police report is required for a crime to be included in the statistics. Every effort is taken to ensure that all persons required to report in fact do so, and that our statistics are as accurate as possible.

The report shows crimes submitted and/or reported to the UC Police Division. These figures include reports of crimes occurring on campus, in non-campus buildings or properties, and public property surrounding the university and its campuses. These geographic areas are defined as follows:
