Annual Crime Report

=> View the 2013 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report as a PDF.

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.

University Public Safety, including University Police and Security Services, has primary responsibility for crime prevention and law enforcement on campus. Other areas, such as Student Affairs, Transportation and Parking, Environmental Health and Safety, Hospitals Safety and Security, 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.
