Preparation of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Reports

Annual Security Report

The Annual Security Report is prepared by KU's Clery Compliance Coordinator in conjunction with the Kutztown University Police Department (KUPD), local law enforcement agencies, and various campus departments responsible for providing programs and services that support Clery compliance. To comply with the federal law, KU requests and collects crime statistics from local police agencies by providing the addresses of off-campus property either owned or controlled by the university or public property immediately adjacent to campus. These statistics are included with the KUPD statistics as well as those gathered from reports submitted by Campus Security Authorities (CSAs). Campus Security Authorities include not only KU police and security personnel, but also employees in many campus departments such as Housing, Residence Life, Social Equity, Student Conduct, Athletics, the Health Center, Women's Center, Student Involvement and student organization advisors.

To be in full compliance with the law, KU publishes and makes available to current and prospective students and employees it's Annual Security Report (ASR) containing safety and security-related policy statements and crime statistics by October 1 of each year. The report provides crime statistics for the past three years, details campus and community policies about safety and security measures, describes campus crime prevention programs, and lists procedures to be followed in the investigation and prosecution of alleged sex offenses.

Each year the Clery Compliance Coordinator sends an email notification to all current students, faculty and staff providing a link to an electronic copy of the both the Annual Security Report and Fire Safety Report.
