Annual campus crime report now available

California State University, Sacramento’s annual campus crime report is now available online at www.csus.edu/police/cleryact.htm. Printed copies are available in Student Affairs, Public Safety and the University Library.

The report, which covers 2003, shows small but significant declines in most categories. Aggravated assault rose a bit due to incidents on non-campus property.

The report also includes extensive information about law enforcement, crime reporting, campus security, crime prevention and resources. And in addition to required categories, Sacramento State’s report includes a section on “hate crimes.” The few incidents in this category are related to graffiti, according to campus police.

Detailed incident statistics can be found by scrolling to the middle of the report.

The report is published in compliance with the federal Clery Act, which requires universities nationwide to inform the community about all campus crimes reported to any campus official. It also requires that the campus reports include property immediately adjacent to any campus property and to property the campus uses, such as rented office space.

Sacramento State has received high marks from auditors for its Clery Act reporting. More information is available by contacting Public Safety at (916) 278-6851.
