Annual security Report

Annual Public Safety Report

The report is prepared by reviewing all incidents reported to the Office of Public Safety at the Rose Hill, Lincoln Center and Marymount campuses. In addition, the dean of students and director of residential life are surveyed to determine if any incidents of a serious nature were reported to these respective offices. Statistics pertaining to crimes occurring on public property adjoining the university are requested from the local police jurisdictions each year, including information concerning any crimes that occurred in University-controlled off-campus housing that may not have been reported to the Office of Public Safety. The University does not have any off-campus housing facilities controlled by student organizations and officially recognized by the University. All serious incidents or crimes should be reported to the campus office of public safety. Serious crimes reported on a confidential basis to a pastoral or professional counselor are not included in the annual public safety report. However, staff counselors, after providing professional guidance, are encouraged to have victims or witnesses report incidents to the Office of Public Safety or the local police.
