Annual Security Report and Fire Report
In 1990, U.S. Congress passed the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act, which required all post-secondary institutions participating in Title IV student financial aid programs to disclose campus crime statistics and campus security information and polices. The act was amended in 1992, 1998 and 2000. The 1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-315) further created campus safety requirements in the following areas: hate crime reporting and emergency response; evacuation procedures; missing student notification; and fire safety issues.
The Clery Act requires institutions to disclose three general categories of crime statistics:
- Types of Offenses – Criminal Homicide, including: a) Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter; and b) Negligent Manslaughter; Sex Offenses including: a) forcible, and b) non-forcible; Robbery; Aggravated Assault; Burglary; Motor Vehicle Theft; and Arson.
- Hate Crimes – Disclose whether any of the above-mentioned offenses, or any other crimes involving bodily injury, were hate crimes; and
- Arrests and Referrals for Disciplinary Action for illegal weapons possessions and violation of drug and liquor laws.
Crime statistics that are provided in this annual report are based upon incidents reported by the University Police Department, Office of Student Affairs and Residential Life. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act. This annual report is prepared by the Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs. FHSU annually reports statistics for the three most recent calendar years concerning the occurrence on campus, in residence halls, and on public property. Campus crime, arrests, and referral statistics include those reported to the FHSU Police, Residential Life and the Office of Student Affairs.
