To the University Community:
On behalf of the members of the Office of Public Safety, I want to thank you for your interest in our annual Fire Safety and Security Report. We published this report because it contains valuable information for our campus community and to comply with the important provisions of the Clery Act. Campus safety and security in addition to compliance with the Clery Act should be considered the responsibility of the staff and students at the University. We encourage you to review the information we have made available to you in this brochure. Inside you will find information about our organization, including descriptions of certain services that we provide. You will become familiar with our strong commitment to victims of crimes; through the extensive services we make available to crime victims. Lastly, you will find important information about security policies and procedures on our campus, crime data, and crime prevention information. We join President Roth in the commitment to foster a secure and supportive environment at Wesleyan University. We are proud to be an integral part of Wesleyan University’s tradition of excellence. Campus safety and security is a collaborative effort at the University. We partner with the many Departments that have a critical role in fostering campus safety, including other Departments of Student Affairs, Environmental Health & Safety, and other University offices. It has always been our goal to provide the highest quality of public safety services to the University, and we are honored to collaborate with the entire University community. The men and women of the Office of Public Safety are committed to making the Wesleyan University campus a safe place in which to live, work, and study.
