Crime Statistics

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires higher education institutions to disclose campus crime statistics for Clery-specific crimes occurring within Clery geography.

Clery geography includes the following three categories as defined by the Department of Education:

  • On-campus property - Defined as any building or property owned or controlled by ASU within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a matter related to, the institution's educational purposes, including residence halls; and any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the area in paragraph (1) of this definition that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as food or other retail vendor).
  • On-campus Student Housing Facility - Defined as any student housing facility that is owned or controlled by the institution, and is within the reasonably contiguous geographic area that makes up the campus.
  • Public property - Defined as public property, including throughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities, that is within the campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
    • Sidewalk, street, sidewalk - Public property does not include anything beyond the second sidewalk.
  • Non-campus property - Defined as any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution; or any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct support of, or in relation to, the institution's educational purposes, is frequently used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution. Non-campus property includes locations for lodging during short-stay away trips and study abroad programs.

Collection of crime statistics

ASU Police collects statistical information provided by reports from campus security authorities and local law enforcement: Tempe, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Glendale, and Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. ASU also collects statistical information from local jurisdictions, which provide law enforcement services to locations defined under non-campus property.

Public property considerations

Public property locations may be patrolled by other local law enforcement agencies who report statistics to ASU police. Crimes and crime locations reported to local law enforcement can be viewed online through the crime maps links:
