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 that
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 off-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.

In cases involving Liquor Law, Drug Law, and Illegal Weapons Law violations, each person
who was arrested is indicated in the arrest statistics. The statistics captured under the
“Referred for Disciplinary Action” section for Liquor Law, Drug Law, and Weapons Law
violations indicates the number of people referred to the Office of the Dean of Students or the
Director of Student Housing who were charged with a violation.

Listing crime statistics for the category of Larceny is not required by law, but is still provided in
the interest of informing the community about the most frequent crimes that occur at UCCS.
Only those incidents reported to UCCS PD are captured in these statistics.

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, national origin, physical or mental disability, 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 Policy10: 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.
