It’s a crime

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires all public and private college campuses to publish an annual crime report. Named after a student at Lehigh University who was murdered on campus in 1986, the act was established in 1990.

Each Oct. 1, schools must release the statistics for the prior three years. The numbers for Chico State given below include crimes that occurred on campus, in dorms and in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the university.

Forcible-sex charges consist of any sexual act directed against another person, forcibly and/or against that person’s will. Non-forcible sexual acts are crimes such as incest and statutory rape. Well worth noting is the fact that there were no incidences of murder or manslaughter reported on campus in the last three years, as well as no hate crimes.
