Clery Policies & Procedures
Policy for Reporting the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics
The University of Michigan-Dearborn Department of Public Safety prepares the Annual Security Report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. The full text of this report can be located on our website via the button below. Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those gathered via incident reports within our department as well as statistics reported to the UM-Dearborn Department of Public Safety via Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) and statistics received from local law enforcement agencies.
The report is distributed by October 1st of each year and includes the disclosure of crime statistics for the most recently completed three calendar years. The crime statistics must also be submitted to the US Department of Education every year in a manner prescribed by the DOE. The report is posted on the University of Michigan-Dearborn Department of Public Safety website and the crime statistics for our school can be found on the United States Office of Postsecondary Education website. Access to the report and a paper copy of the report is available upon request from the UM-Dearborn Department of Public Safety, 1300 Campus Support Services Building.
Michigan law requires prompt, mandatory reporting to the local law enforcement agency by health care practitioners when they provide medical services to a person they know or reasonably suspects is suffering from wounds inflicted by a firearm or is a result of assaultive or abusive conduct. Department of Counseling and Support Services staff inform their clients of the procedures to report crime to the University of Michigan-Dearborn Department of Public Safety on a voluntary or confidential basis, should they feel it is in the best interest of the client.
