Crime Statistics

But the usual crimes still happen here.
Keep your car/bicyle locked. Your wallet/purse out of sight.


Dear Stanford community member,

             Have you thought about what you would do if confronted by someone whose intent was to physically harm you or others?

             If you or someone you know has been impacted by sexual violence or domestic violence, do you know what resources are available and how to contact these resources?

             What would you do if you had an emergency while traveling on university business or while conducting research on a university sponsored trip?

             Do you have significant responsibility for student and campus activities and the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the university?  If so, do you know your reporting obligations under federal and state law?   

Information about the answers to all of these questions can be found in the 2018 Annual Safety, Security and Fire Report.  This report, which is being sent to you in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act, contains numerous safety-related policies as well as the crime and fire statistics for calendar years 2015-2017.

In 2016 we had several break-ins.
No one was hurt, but money and equipment was taken.
Property was damaged.
