Campus Safety and Crime Reporting

AMU makes every effort to provide safe campus environments for its students. Onsite security staff are present during operating hours to stop abusive behavior and solve problems. 

This combination of staffing and organizational and physical infrastructure is designed to help young adults learn to take responsibility for their own safety in a context of accurate knowledge of risks and resources.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 is part of the Higher Education Act. The goal of the Clery Act is to ensure students, prospective students, parents and employees have access to accurate information about crimes committed on campus and campus security procedures. 

The Alhambra Police Department gathers crime statistics, identifying reportable crimes and reporting/publishing statistics to the public. Statistics are reported in different formats and categories depending upon legal requirements. The Clery Act mandates the collection of information regarding incidents from non-law enforcement "campus security authorities" having "significant responsibility for students or campus activities." 

The Campus Annual Security Report must include statistics on categories of crime reported to campus Police, Campus Security Authorities (see below), and local police during the calendar year. Statistics for these crimes must be broken down by geographic area: on campus, in or on a non-campus building or property, and on public property adjacent to the campus.

The Annual Security Report must also include statistics on hate crimes, to be reported by category of prejudice. In addition to crime statistics, the Annual Security Report must describe specific campus policies related to campus security. The campus must notify current and prospective students and employees about the availability of the Annual Security Report and provide information on how to request a copy of the report.

The annual crime report must include statistics on nine kinds of crimes:

  1. Criminal Homicide, both (a) Murder and Non-negligent Manslaughter and (b) Negligent Manslaughter;

  2. Sex offenses, both (a) Forcible Sex Offenses and (b) Non-Forcible Sex Offenses;

  3. Robbery;

  4. Aggravated Assault;

  5. Burglary;

  6. Motor Vehicle Theft;

  7. Arson;

  8. Arrests and Disciplinary Referrals for liquor law violations, drug law violations, and illegal weapons possession;

  9. Hate Crimes

Amendments to the Clery Act in 2008 expanded hate crimes to include the following:

  • Larceny-theft

  • Simple Assault

  • Intimidation

  • Vandalism

In March 2013, President Obama signed a bill that strengthened the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Included in the bill was the Campus Sexual Violation Elimination Act (Campus SaVE) that amends the Clery Act to include reporting the following effective 2014:

  • Dating Violence

  • Domestic Violence

  • Stalking

The crime statistics included in the Annual Security Report do not include any information that would identify the victim or the person accused of committing the crime. Your report to the Clery Act Coordinator should not include personally identifying information.
