The University of Toledo’s 2019 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report has been completed and is available online at the Clery Act Compliance website.
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 2018 — are publicly available and may be accessed on the Clery Act Compliance website.
“Our No. 1 goal is keeping our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors safe,” said Elliott Nickeson, Clery Act compliance officer, who compiles the report. “Ensuring everyone’s safety on campus requires ongoing collaboration among campus community members, as well as external partners such as law enforcement officers, emergency responders and block-watch leaders.”
If an emergency or crime-related incident occurs, every member of the campus community should know what to do, Nickeson stated.
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.
“Publishing our annual Security and Fire Safety Report is one more way the University can educate students and others about the importance of safety, how carefully we’re monitoring reported occurrences, and specifically what we’re doing to continually improve our efforts to keep everyone safe on campus,” Nickeson said.
