In 1990, President George Bush signed into law the "Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act.", also cited as the "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. This act requires all post-secondary institutions to prepare, publish and distribute certain information regarding campus crimes and policies relating to security. In 1998 this act was renamed the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act."
At Florida International University, campus crime and security policy information may be obtained by contacting the University Police Department (UPD) at (305)348-2623 or at this web site.
FIUPD submits Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. They also regularly disseminate information concerning the incidence of crime through local and on-campus media. The data is ultimately published by the FBI in the Uniform Crime Report. The following chart reflects the number of crimes reported for selected offenses as required by federal law. It includes three years. Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s definitions of the selected offenses are available by contacting the FIUPD.
Crimes are also reported to the FIUPD by other FIU departments. The link below contains a chart which reflects cases that were reported from 2005 through 2008.
