5. CRIME STATISTICS

a. Statement Addressing Preparation of Disclosure of Annual Crime Statistics

The UCCS Department of Public Safety prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act). In addition to statistics provided by the UCCS Police, crime statistics were also requested from the Colorado Springs Police Department for the areas surrounding campus and the off-campus properties that the university owns, leases or rents. Disciplinary-referral statistics were requested from the Office of the Dean of Students and the Director of Residence Life and Housing. Additionally, the Department of Public Safety requests crime statistics from the Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) on an annual basis. These CSAs are required to provide the Department of Public Safety information on any crime reported directly to them during the previous calendar year. For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported. All statistics are gathered, compiled, and reported to the University community via this report. The Department of Public Safety submits these crime statistics to the Department of Education. By October 1 of each year, an e-mail notification is made to all enrolled students and current faculty and staff to provide information about this report. It includes a brief summary of the contents of this report, the website address for accessing this report, and information regarding how interested persons can request a printed copy of the report.

b. Statement Addressing Criminal Activity Off Campus

UCCS has no university owned or controlled non-campus student organization facilities. If any local law enforcement agency in the Pikes Peak region is contacted about criminal activity occurring off-campus involving UCCS students, that agency is encouraged to notify UCCS PD. Students in these cases may be subject to arrest by any law enforcement agency and may be referred to the UCCS Office of the Dean of Students.

Hate Crime/ Bias Incidents   As stated in Colorado Revised Statute 18-9-121 Bias-motivated crimes, the Colorado General Assembly defines a Bias-motivated crime as a crime committed with the intent to intimidate or harass another person because of that person's actual or perceived race, color, religion, ancestry, ethnicity, national origin, physical or mental disability, gender identity or sexual orientation. A hate or bias related crime is not a separate, distinct crime, but is the commission of a criminal offense which was motivated by the offender's bias. For example, a subject assaults a victim, which is a crime. If the facts of the case indicate that the offender was motivated to commit the offense because of his/her bias against the victim's race, sexual orientation, etc., the assault is then also classified as a hate/bias crime. The University of Colorado Board of Regents Policy 10: Non-Discrimination, affirms that the University of Colorado is committed to building a community of students, faculty, and staff in which diversity is a fundamental value. People are different, and the differences among them are what we call diversity -- a natural and enriching hallmark of life. A climate of healthy diversity is one in which people value rich panoply of diverse ideas, perspectives and backgrounds, individual and group differences, and communicates openly. If you believe that you may have been a victim of a bias-motivated crime, contact UCCS PD at (719) 255-3111.

REPORTED CRIMES may involve individuals not associated with the institution..
