CAMPUS CRIME & SECURITY REPORT
The Campus Crime & Security Report is now available on the student website. Each year, in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, Ex’pression College for Digital Arts prepares an annual campus crime and security report to be published by October 1st of each year. The report includes statistics for 2008-2010 concerning reportable crimes (as classified by the Act) that occurred on campus and on public property immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. Please note that Ex’pression College has no Residential Facilities or Non-Campus properties and therefore no statistical data is reported for these.
I am often asked why auto break-ins are not reported in our statistical breakdown of crimes. This is because it is not considered a reportable crime under the Clery Act. We have however included information about auto break-ins that were reported to our Security Department at the end of the report.
If you have questions concerning the Campus Crime & Security report, please contact Melissa Thompson, Manager of Compliance & Regulatory Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
