Annually, Penn State publishes a report entitled "Policies, Safety, & U." The report contains crime statistics from the previous three years that were reported to local police agencies, or to campus security authorities that occurred at the following locations:
- On campus.
- In certain off-campus buildings, owned, or controlled by Penn State.
- Public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
The statistics in the report reflect the number of criminal incidents reported to the various authorities. The report also includes institutional policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters.
This report is a result of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and complies with Federal reporting requirements, specifically 20 U.S. Code Section 1092(f).
