How Safe Is Emmanuel?

Last week, Emmanuel released the Annual Campus Security and Fire Report, which details all of the crime on and nearby campus. The 47-page report includes Emmanuel’s procedures and policies, a list of awareness and prevention programs, safety tips, and even a table of campus safety phone numbers and national hotline services.

But the most crucial part of the security report is near the end. On page 41 is a table charting Emmanuel’s crime statistics. While Emmanuel is a fairly small school with fairly low statistics, there are some numbers that cannot be ignored.

Last year, there were 2 reports of rape in residence halls and one count of aggravated assault. Unsurprisingly, heavy disciplinary action was taken in relation to drugs and alcohol.

Under the Jean Cleary Act of 1990, every college and university that receives public funding must release their security records from the past three years. The law is named after 19-year-old Jeanne Cleary who was raped and murdered in her dorm room in 1986.
