Uniform Crime Reports
In accordance with the State of Connecticut Campus Safety Act of 1990, Post University annually participates in the Connecticut Uniform Crime Reporting program, and utilizes its reporting methodology. The Office of Campus Safety maintains annual statistics, broken down by semester, on campus crime. The crime rate is derived from dividing the number of reported incidents by the total number of students, faculty and staff. The continuing goal and commitment to the students, faculty, and staff is to eliminate crime on campus.
Also in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Act (Clery Act), Post University publishes an annual security report disclosing campus security policies and three years of selected crime statistics, as well as information about crimes that might pose a threat to the community, basic rights that must be accorded to victims of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking, and the college policy regarding alcoholic beverages and substance abuse. A printed copy of the report is available, upon request, at the Campus Security office.
Post University asks all employees who witness, learn of or hear about a Clery Act crime* to contact Campus Security and report what happened and where it happened; you may identify the victim or keep the victim’s identity confidential. Note that pastoral counselors and professional counselors are not required to report crimes unless they have a legal obligation to report a particular crime.
- Just provide the facts; you are not a detective and should not investigate the crime.
- Don’t worry about categorizing the crime – Campus Security will do that.
- Don’t search for a perpetrator
- Encourage the victim to report the crime to Campus Security. You can use the online form to report the crime, contact Campus Security at 203.596.4502 or send an email to RMaxwell@post.edu
