Annual safety and security report

Annual safety and security report

The safety and well-being of all members of our community are of utmost importance to Monmouth College. We are dedicated to making the campus a safe place to live and work.

A safe environment depends on the cooperation and involvement from all campus constituencies, including students and faculty. We encourage all members of the Monmouth College community to use this report as a guide for safe practices on and off campus.

To comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, our Office of Residence Life, in collaboration with the Director of Campus Safety prepares this report and works with several offices and public agencies to gather the information herein. Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to our office, designated campus officials and local law enforcement agencies.

This report gives information to aid in the cooperative effort of creating a safer campus. These statistics reflect reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Monmouth College and on public property that is immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

The crime statistics are updated by Oct. 1 each year. We notify all students, staff and faculty by email when the report is ready. Our daily crime logs are available in the Office of Residence Life in Poling Hall.

Campus safety jurisdiction

We refer College policy violations to the Office of Student Affairs, and we refer and report criminal matters to Student Affairs and local law enforcement as appropriate. We fully cooperate with local law enforcement in criminal investigations relating to crimes alleged to have occurred on or near the campus, providing them with full access to investigate and arrest violators.

Campus Safety personnel have the authority to remove individuals from College property if they pose a security threat or disruption to campus life. Our personnel will contact law enforcement agencies to manage local, state and federal law violations and College policy violations as appropriate.

Although our jurisdiction is generally limited to conduct that occurs at College-sponsored events or on campus property, the College can and does respond to off‐campus student‐related incidents that occur in close proximity to the campus and cooperates with local law enforcement in these instances.
