Annual Safety & Security/Fire Safety Report

Published: September 30, 2015

The 2015 Annual Safety and Security/Fire Safety Report (ASR) is provided in compliance with the 1998 Jeanne Clery Disclosure Act, and California Education Code section 67380. The report informs the campus community about important procedures, policies, crime prevention programs, and campus crime statistics. A notice is mailed annually to students and employees advising them that the report can be accessed on the department website at: Hard copies of the report may also be obtained from the Police Department or printed from the website via Adobe Acrobat Reader. Prospective employees and students are afforded the same information at the time they obtain an application for employment or admission. Any person may have access to the report.

Compilation of information for the report as well as criminal statistical data as required by the Act is accomplished through cooperative efforts with Student Affairs, Human Resources, Resident Housing, Judicial Affairs, Deans, the Athletic Director, team coaches, and Advisors to student organizations. Physicians and counselors from University Health and Psychological Services Center encourage victims of criminal offenses to report their circumstance to the Fresno State Police Department.

Pastoral and professional counselors are not required to report crimes for inclusion into this report.  However, if and when they deem it appropriate, they are encouraged to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for the inclusion into the annual crime statistics. Counselors should always consider any possible need for the issuance of required timely warning(s) in situations that involve an immediate, on-going or future threat to the safety of a member of the campus community.

Criminal statistics for off-campus properties owned or controlled by the University or recognized student organizations, and public property immediately adjacent to the campus are obtained from the local law enforcement agencies.

If you have questions regarding the ASR, please contact the Fresno State Police Department, 559.278-8400.
