Crime Statistics

Campus Crime Statistics (2015, 2016, and 2017)

Under the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), US post-secondary educational institutions must compile and make public annually certain crime statistics and security information. The reportable crimes are defined in accordance with the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program.

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) included amendments to the Clery Act that requires institutions to also disclose statistics related to dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.

A third category of reportable crime statistics discloses the number of arrests and referrals for disciplinary action for certain liquor, drug, and weapons law violations.

A final category of statistics discloses hate crimes—criminal offenses that manifest evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the perpetrator’s bias against the victim based upon race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, national origin, or disability.

Washington University School of Medicine’s statistics include data from Washington University School of Medicine Protective Services, WUSM Campus Security Authorities, Barnes-Jewish Hospital Public Safety, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, and—for satellite facilities—the local police departments in each jurisdiction.

The reporting period is for the calendar year. Statistics are reported for crimes that occurred during the most recent calendar year plus the two preceding calendar years.
