Crime Statistics

The Campus Security Act requires that institutions collect and report statistics for certain offenses. In addition to collecting information from Public Safety officers and from those administrators specifically designated as alternatives to receive reports of crimes (identified above in the section on "Reporting Crimes,") the Act requires that all other "campus security authorities" report to Public Safety statistical information only (not including any personally identifiable information) on any of those offenses reported to them. "Campus security authorities" are individuals who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including but not limited to student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings. For purposes of collecting statistical information, Public Safety considers that campus security authorities at Washington and Lee include, but are not limited to, the following positions (in addition to Public Safety officers, and those individuals designated under the heading "Reporting Crimes" in this document):

  • Title IX Coordinator and Assistant Title IX Coordinators
