Security releases annual campus crime report

Security releases annual campus crime report

Aubrey Zych '14, Editor-in-Chief

Each year, college campuses nationwide are required to release information regarding crime on campus and in the surrounding communities in the form of a report due each year by Oct. 1. The Le Moyne security office released a detailed report in the form of graph [shown below] Monday, Sept. 30 that outlines the various crimes on campus for 2012, 2011 and 2010.

This information has been required of all campuses since 1990 when the U.S. Department of Education [DEC] passed a federal regulation called the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, more commonly known as the Clery Act.

This year’s report shows a decrease in crime numbers across nearly every type of offense except alcohol violations, which show 79 more incidences for both on campus and off. A more detailed report on the increase in alcohol violations will be included in next week’s issue.

The annual security and fire safety compliance document is available on the Le Moyne College Security Department’s website. Hard copies are also available at the security office, the admissions office, the human resource office, and the campus life and leadership office.
