Crime and Internal Affairs Statistics

Institutions of higher learning must distribute reports concerning campus crime statistics and campus security policies on an annual basis to all current and prospective students, faculty, and staff.

This is a requirement of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

Since the UMB Police Force has concurrent jurisdiction with the Baltimore Police Department, statistics from both departments are combined. To view the complete listing of crime statistics on campus, consult our Internal Affairs Annual Reports.
