Annual Crime Report

=> View the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report as a PDF.

The Department of Education has a deadline of October 15 to report Clery statistics to their online data collection system. Please note that several statistics were revised on October 15 based on subsequent guidance from the Department of Education and to correct clerical error.

Your safety is our concern. It also must be your concern. As a university, we work very hard to prevent crime, fire, accidents and illness, but nothing we do is as important as what you do — and, in some cases, don't do.

The Ohio State University Department of Public Safety, including University Police, Central Campus Security and Protective Services, and Emergency Management and Fire Prevention has primary responsibility for crime prevention, fire prevention, emergency planning and law enforcement services on campus. Other areas, such as Student Life, Transportation and Traffic Management, Environmental Health and Safety, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Library Security, the Title IX Coordinator, and many others also contribute to making this a safer place to study, work and live.

This publication and web site contain a lot of valuable information about how you can help us keep you safe, on and off campus. Please pay special attention to the safety tips. Following them will greatly reduce the chances that you'll be the victim of crime, become injured or lose valuables.

Let's work together to have a safe year.
