2016

Published: September 30, 2016

Updated: October 7, 2016.  Arrests for Illegal weapons possession in Student Housing corrected for 2013 from one (1) to zero (0).

The 2016 Annual Safety and Security/Fire Safety Report (ASR) is provided in compliance with the 1998 Jeanne Clery Disclosure Act, and California Education Code section 67380. This report includes important information about institutional policies and procedures, personal safety and crime prevention programs, how to report suspicious and criminal activity, and required Clery Act crime statistics for the previous three calendar years. A notice is mailed annually to students and employees advising them that the report can be accessed on the department website at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/adminserv/police/clery.  Prospective employees and students are afforded the same information at the time they obtain an application for employment or admission. Hard copies of the report may also be obtained from the Fresno State Police Department or printed from the website via Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Compilation of information for this report, as well as required criminal statistical data, is accomplished through cooperative efforts with the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, Human Resources, Resident Housing, Deans, the Athletic Director, team coaches, and Advisors to student organizations. Physicians and counselors from University Health and Psychological Services encourage victims of criminal offenses to report their circumstances to the Fresno State Police Department.

Pastoral and professional counselors are not required to report crimes for inclusion into this report.  However, if and when they deem it appropriate, they are encouraged to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics. Counselors should always consider any possible need for the issuance of required timely warning(s) in situations that involve an immediate, on-going or future threat to the safety of a member of the campus community.

Criminal statistics for off-campus properties owned or controlled by the University or recognized student organizations, and public property immediately adjacent to the campus are obtained from local law enforcement agencies.

If you have questions regarding the ASR, please contact the Fresno State Police Department, 559.278.8400.
