LCC annual police and crime statistics now available

Today, LCC released two reports, one compiled in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, and another compiled in compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act. They provide information about the number of crimes committed and/or reported on LCC’s campus. They are reports federal law mandates we issue; but more than that, they are our good-faith effort to ensure you are aware of your surroundings and have the information you need to keep yourself safe.

In addition to crime statistics, the reports include information about our efforts to continuously improve campus security. We are committed to finding new and better ways to ensure LCC is a safe, nurturing, welcoming environment for all students, employees and community members.

My top priority as LCC’s chief of police is keeping you and everyone on LCC’s campus safe. In addition to investigating criminal activity and patrolling campus, the LCC Police and Public Safety Department is available at any time to jump a car or personally escort you to and from your classes. We are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we want to help. You can reach us at x1800.

If you would prefer a written copy of either of these reports, visit the Downtown Campus’ Police and Public Safety Office, located in the Gannon Building, Room 201.

Please read this report carefully, and use the information to protect yourself and your fellow classmates and colleagues.
