Annual Security & Fire Safety Report

The federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, as amended, requires colleges and universities to provide information related to security policies and procedures and specific statistics for criminal incidents, arrests, and disciplinary referrals to students and employees, and to make the information and statistics available to prospective students and employees upon request. Federal law requires institutions with on-campus housing to share with the campus community an annual fire report.

In addition, the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Act requires Pennsylvania colleges and universities to provide information related to security policies and procedures to students, employees and applicants; to provide certain crime statistics to students and employees, and to make those statistics available to applicants and prospective employees upon request. In compliance with the UCR requirements, DPS also maintains an electronic version of the daily UCR crime log on our lobby kiosk, and a printed copy is available for review, at our headquarters at 4040 Chestnut Street.

You may view the report below or request a paper copy of the report by calling the Division of Public Safety's Special Services Department at 215-898-4481.  DPS also maintains an electronic version of the daily Clery crime log on our lobby kiosk, and a printed copy is available for review, at our headquarters at 4040 Chestnut Street.
