**Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Education has modified the deadline to publish the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. The campus community will be notified when the report is published.**
The Clery Act requires institutions of higher learning to prepare, publish, and distribute a report concerning campus crime statistics and security policies on an annual basis. This report complies with the provisions as codified in 1.) United States Code, Title 20, Section 1092 (f) and amended in 1992 and 1998 as part of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
Copies of the report may be obtained, in person, from the Department of Public Safety, 102 Wallman Hall, (304) 367-4157.
The statistics include reported statistics from the following sources:
Department of Public Safety shall make, keep, and maintain a daily log, recording, disclosing all crimes occurring on campus, or within the patrol jurisdiction. The log shall be made publicly available during normal working hours.
Each institution shall submit to the Secretary of the Department of Education a copy of the statistics.
In addition to patrol services, the Department of Public Safety promotes and maintains safety awareness through outreach programs and publication. Information is available in the office, third floor, Falcon Center.
