Crime Report 2013 - 2014

The crime and fire statistics that are displayed below are for the years of 2010, 2011 and 2012. This follows The Federal Department of Education’s guidelines for the publishing of crime and fire data, by October 1st, for the previous three years.

Crime Reporting

During the Academic year, the Department of Safety and Security produces a weekly media report summarizing Criminal incidents, when a victim or other involved parties report the incident to Safety and Security. This report is submitted to The Exponent, BW's student newspaper, and is published at the discretion of the editors. There is a log of these summarized incidents available for public review, located at Safety and Security.

The Student Affairs Office, in conjunction with the Department of Safety and Security, will make timely warning reports to the campus community regarding certain crimes that represent a continuing threat to the campus community. In addition to being posted in public areas, this information may be distributed by U.S. Postal Service, campus mail, and/or electronic mail.

In accordance with the Campus Security Act, Baldwin Wallace University provides crime statistics and security information to current and prospective students and current and prospective employees.
The Federal Department of Education requires all colleges and universities to submit their crime statistics by October 1 for the previous three years. These statistics include crimes that have taken place on campus, non-campus (Buildings and Grounds, the Community Outreach House in Cleveland, and BW at Corporate College East), and on neighboring public property (public streets, sidewalks, Coe Lake and the Cleveland MetroParks). The Safety and Security Department serves as the "clearing house" in the gathering of crime data and judicial referrals from those with "significant responsibilities for students and campus activities". Residence Life, Student Affairs, and the Berea Police are the other departments to report incidents of crime, and on a daily basis, all are in contact with Safety and Security. In addition, an annual report is requested from the Berea Police Department, the Berea Fire Department, the Cleveland Police Department, the Beachwood Police Department, the Student Health Center, the Cleveland MetroPark Ranger Department, and Student affairs. "Non-campus" facility administrators are also contacted annually for criminal incident information. All gathered information is then compared to minimize multiple postings, and then incorporated in the following statistical tables:
