Clery Incident Report Form

This report is to be completed if victim/witness does not wish to report the incident to the University of Maryland Baltimore Police Force.

If the reported incident constitutes a threat to the safety of the UMB community, prior to completing this form, the CSA shall immediately telephone UMBPF at 401-706-6882.

One purpose of Clery is to encourage reporting and collection of accurate campus crime statistics to promote crime awareness and enhance campus safety. This report form provides a uniform method of documenting the What, When, and Where of certain reportable crimes and/or non-criminal, hate-motivated incidents that have occurred and have been reported to Campus Security Authorities (CSA) other than the University of Maryland Baltimore Police Force (UMBPF). Data collected on this form is to be used to increase public safety, not to identify the victim; therefore, personal identifying information is not required.

It is the policy of UMB to encourage victims and/or witnesses to report crimes to the police and/or to a designated CSA. A complete list of CSAs can be found in the 2018 Annual Clery Report‌. For the purposes of Clery, CSAs are required to document certain reportable crimes and non-criminal, hate-motivated incidents that have been reported to them and have occurred in the following locations:

  1. On-campus property: Offense statistics for any building or property owned or controlled by the University within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the University in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the University's educational purpose, including buildings or property the location described herein that is owned by the University but controlled by another person and that is frequently used by students. (Excluding Residential Life buildings).
  2. On-campus residential life buildings
  3. Non-campus property: Offense statistics for non-campus property or building owned or controlled by the University that is frequently used by students and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution, or any building/property that is owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution.
  4. Public property: Offense statistics for public property located immediately adjacent to and accessible from campus, including thoroughfares, sidewalks, streets, and lands.

For Clery purposes, the student status of the offender or the victim is not a relevant fact as to whether or not this report form is to be completed. If a violation of one of the 15 violations (see next page) occurs, documentation is required. Clery documentation is not satisfied by simply directing/referring the reporting party to the UMBPF. For UMBPF to satisfy the statistical reporting requirements of the Clery Act, all CSAs are required to complete this form when any of the specified offenses listed is reported to them. In addition, a person reporting a crime also shall be encouraged to report the crime to the UMB Police Force.

NOTE: Certain individuals, specifically pastoral and professional counselors, are exempted from this requirement to report certain crimes; however, to be exempt from disclosing reported offenses, pastoral and professional counselors must be acting in the official role of pastoral or professional counselor.
