Policy for Reporting the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics
The Miami University Police prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. The statistics disclosed in this report are gathered from the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our campuses; the offices of Residence Life, Community Standards, Business Services, Intercollegiate Athletics, and the Division of Student Life. The report is prepared in cooperation with each of those offices. For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported. A written request for statistical information is made on an annual basis to all Campus Security Authorities (as defined under the Clery Act). Each entity provides updated information on its policies and procedures and its educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act.
