Campus Safety - Crime Reports

Specific Information About Classifying Crime Statistics

The statistics in the report are published in accordance with the standards and guidelines used by the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook and the relevant federal law (the Clery Act/HEOA).  The number of victims involved in a particular incident is indicated in the statistics column for the following crime classifications: Murder/Non-Negligent Manslaughter, Negligent Manslaughter, Forcible and Non-Forcible Sex Offenses, and Aggravated Assault.

For example, if an aggravated assault occurs and there are three victims, this would be counted as three aggravated assaults in the crime statistics chart.

The number reflected in the statistics for the following crime categories includes one offense per distinct operation: Robbery, Burglar, Larceny, Vandalism, and Arson.

For example, if five students are walking across campus together and they are robbed, this would count as one instance of robbery in the crime statistics chart.

In cases of Motor Vehicle Theft, each vehicle stolen is counted as a statistic.  In cases involving Liquor Law, Drug Law, and Illegal Weapons violations, each person who was arrested is indicated in the arrest statistics.

The statistics captured under the "Referred for Disciplinary Action" section for Liquor Law, Drug Law and Illegal Weapons Violations indicates the number of people referred to the Dean of Student Success (Student Judicial Affairs Officer) for disciplinary action for violations of those specific laws.  Being "found responsible" for a violation includes a referral that resulted in a student being charged by the Judicial Affairs Office and a record of the action being kept on file.

The statistics in the Hate Crime charts are separated by category of prejudice.  The numbers for most of the specific crime categories are part of the overall statistics reported for each year.  The only exceptions to this are the addition of Simple Assault, Intimidation, and any other crime that involves bodily injury that is not already included in the required reporting categories.  If a hate/bias crime occurs where there is an incident involving Intimidations, Vandalism, Larceny, Simple Assault or other bodily injury, the law requires that the statistic be reported as a hate/bias crime even though there is no requirement to report the crime classification in any other area of the compliance document.

Note: A hate or bias related crime is not a separate, distinct crime, but is the commission of a criminal offense which was motivated by the offender’s bias.  For example, a subject assaults a victim, which is a crime.  If the facts of the case indicate that the offender was motivated to commit the offense because of his/her bias against the victim’s race, sexual orientation, etc., the assault is then also classified as a hate/bias crime.
