Annual Safety Report on Campus Crime and Fire Incidents

As we do each year, consistent with federal law, Yale University is making available its annual report on campus security and fire safety. Each October we submit a report for the previous calendar year.

The report, available here, contains three years’ worth of campus crime statistics and certain security policy statements, fire safety information, and where students, faculty, and staff should go to report crimes. The report uses federally mandated definitions concerning the locations and types of crimes in order to allow for comparisons across campuses.

The Yale data, along with comparable information from other colleges and universities, are published electronically by the U.S. Department of Education and can be viewed here*.

*The 2012 data will be updated to the U.S. Dept of Education site on October 16, 2013.  Some portion of that data will not be live on that site until November 20, 2013.

If you want to view Yale’s Campus Security and Fire Safety annual reports (the “Clery Report”) from previous years, please click on the links below. 

It is also important to note that the Yale Police monitor and report incidents beyond those that are included in the federally mandated definitions in order to increase awareness and inform the Yale community about serious events.

We hope you will read the report on campus security and fire safety and become familiar with the services and programs that are available to help keep the campus safe.
