Chico State releases annual reports

Under the Clery Act, colleges are required to disclose information about crime that happened on and around its campuses as well as a fire safety report.

The Annual Security Report contains information about campus policy, campus security and personal safety. Topics such as crime prevention, crime reporting, disciplinary procedures and Title IX information are included in the report.

Crime statistics that happened during the last three years are shown at the end of the report. Below is a chart of what was reported in 2014.
