Annual Security Report

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to disseminate a public annual security report (ASR) to employees and students every October 1st. This ASR must include statistics of campus crime for the preceding 3 calendar years, plus details about efforts taken to improve campus safety.

ASRs must also include policy statements regarding (but not limited to) crime reporting, campus facility security and access, law enforcement authority, incidence of alcohol and drug use, and the prevention of/response to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, and stalking.

Each year, SMU sends an email notification to all employees and enrolled students regarding the availability of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. A printed copy of this report may be obtained by writing the SMU Police Department at P.O. Box 750334, Dallas, TX 75275 or by requesting it in person at the SMU Police Department administrative offices in Patterson Hall at 3128 Dyer Street during normal business hours Monday through Friday.
