Campus Crime Information

The University of Missouri-Saint Louis is committed to establishing a safe and secure learning and work environment for those attending classes, those teaching and conducting research, and those whose efforts support these activities while on the campus or its operational extensions.

In 1998, the federal government passed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, formerly the Student Right to Know Act of 1990. This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to disclose the reported instances of criminal activity on their campuses.

The law specifically requires that campus security authorities report violent crime, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, arrests and disciplinary referrals for liquor law violations, drug abuse violations, and weapons possessions as defined by the Clery Act as well as domestic violence, dating violence and stalking as imposed by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act.

In compliance with this act, the University of Missouri-Saint Louis Police Department publishes the annual Campus Crime Report as well as a Daily Activity Fire Log.
