Campus Crime Statistics

Clery Act Report

The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, in compliance with The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) and The College and University Security Act of 1988, reports annually to its current and prospective students and employees. The report contains statistics for the previous three years on reported crimes that have occurred on campus; in certain non-campus buildings or property that is owned or controlled by University of the Sciences; and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security and alcohol use, drug use, crime prevention, reporting of incidents, and a victim’s rights in regard to sexual assaults.

If you believe there has been a violation of one or more of the provisions of the Pennsylvania College and University Security Information Act, you may file a complaint at the Department of Public Safety. The complaint will be forwarded to the Executive Director of Public Safety, who will respond in writing to the complaint within five business days from the date the complaint is received.

If after receiving a reply, you still feel that the violation has been committed and not corrected, you may appeal to the Vice President of Operations, who has the ultimate responsibility to resolve such complaints.

A copy of the annual crime report is available here or by contacting the Department of Public Safety: 215-895-1117.

Annual Clery Report

Megan’s Law

Pennsylvania's legislature aims to enhance public safety by making information about registered sex offenders available to the public. Knowing whether a person is a registered sex offender could be a significant factor in protecting yourself and your family members or the group or community organization in your care.

You can access the PA registration here.

Daily Crime Log

The Daily Crime Log includes incidents reported to the Department of Public Safety by the University community and local law enforcement agencies. It notes all reported crimes, not just those required by The Clery Act and The College and University Security Act of 1988.

The Department of Public Safety is required to disclose any crime that occurred on campus or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus police or the campus security department and is reported to the campus police or security department. The crime log includes the nature, date, time, and general location of each crime as well as its disposition, if known.

Incidents are included in the crime log within two business days of being reported, but certain information may be withheld to protect victim confidentiality, ensure the integrity of an ongoing investigation, or to keep a suspect from fleeing.

Only the most limited information necessary will be withheld and even then it will be released once the adverse effect is no longer likely to occur.

The crime log is available below or in the Public Safety Office during normal business hours at 4500 Woodland Avenue. Individuals can by request view crime logs older than 2009. Logs become available within two business days of the request.
