The Campus Security Annual Report (CSAR) statistics are derived from incident reports initiated and maintained by the Campus Police Department. Data are compiled each calendar year and the CSAR is published and disseminated in January; interim reports may be published throughout the academic year. For brevity in the CSAR, only those crimes recognized under the Student Right to Know Act are included. Incidents such as petty theft (the most prevalent on-campus criminal activity) and other less serious offenses are not enumerated. For serious crime or other safety-related incidents in which immediate notifications are needed to help the College's participants take protective measures, the Campus Police will take necessary and appropriate actions for such notifications.
