Annual Security Report
The Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 requires institutions to disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures and to provide statistics concerning the occurrence of certain criminal offenses by designated categories. Compilation and distribution of an annual report is mandated for all institutions participating in the student financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Educations Act of 1965.
The Campus Safety and Fire Safety Annual Report for 2015 is now available.
The handbook details the policies and procedures that Colorado College uses to deter and respond to crime on campus and the systems and educational components related to fire safety. In it you will find listings of measures Colorado College has taken to help you in maintaining personal safety. You will find suggestions on how you can increase your own safety, as well as information about campus law enforcement policies, campus security education and prevention programs, alcohol and drug policies, sexual assault education, vehicles(s) for reporting and procedures for handling reports of sexual assault. The handbook contains crime statistics for the three previous years for crimes that occurred on campus and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. Further it contains fire statistics for the three previous years concerning actual fires, false alarms and unwanted alarms in campus facilities.
If you would like to receive a hard copy of the “Campus Safety/Fire Safety Information Handbook” which contains this same information, you can stop by the Campus Safety Office, 833 N. Tejon, Colorado Springs, CO. 80903 or you can request that a copy be mailed to you by calling (719) 389-6707
Updates to the 2015 ASR
Higher education institutions were required this year to make some changes to the crime statistics and information provided in our annual report.
The most notable of these changes included tracking and reporting instances of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. You will see definitions of these crimes, programming and education based around these crimes, and reported instances of these crimes reflected in the annual report for 2015.
