Clery Compliance

On October 31, 2018, Campus Safety conducted an internal audit on all past law enforcement liquor law violation reports for incidents that contained no specific street address. As a result, revisions were made to the 2016 statistics in that specific offense category and the 2017 and 2018 Annual Security and Fire Safety reports were updated accordingly. Notwithstanding the aforementioned revised liquor law violations, a full review of all Clery crime statistics confirmed accurate Annual Security and Fire Safety Report in all other offense categories for all reporting years.
