The University of Toledo’s 2021 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report has been completed and is available online.
The report includes information about crime prevention, emergency procedures, incident reporting and crime statistics, both on and adjacent to the University’s campuses.
Additionally, in compliance with the Clery Act, the annual report includes reported campus crime statistics for the past three years, as well as information about campus safety and the University’s security policies. UToledo’s previous Security and Fire Safety Reports — for 2014 through 2021 — are publicly available and may be accessed on the the Department of Internal Audit and Compliance’s Clery Act Compliance website.
“This report not only provides statistics for crimes that have occurred, more importantly, it provides resources on this campus to hopefully help prevent crimes in the future from ever happening,” said Elliott Nickeson, assistant director of institutional compliance, who compiles the report.
If an emergency or crime-related incident arises, it’s important that all of our stakeholders know what to do, including how to report it and to whom, Nickeson said.
Students and staff are strongly encouraged to download RaveGuardian, a free smart mobile app that offers a panic button to immediately contact police and a GPS feature that shows your location. The app also enables you to communicate with UToledo Police via text messaging and provides a directory of on- and off-campus safety resources.
“Nothing is more fundamental than the safety of our campus,” Nickeson added. “UToledo believes every person learning, living, working and receiving healthcare on The University of Toledo campuses has the right to a safe and secure environment. There are countless offices across the University who make it their mission to ensure each student and staff member has a safe campus to come to.”
