Clery Act Crime Reporting
If a serious crime that may cause an imminent or ongoing threat to the campus community is reported to you, immediately contact WSUPD Dispatch:
- Emergency Response: 911
- Non-Emergency Response: 801-626-6460
- WSU Police Department: 3734 Dixon Parkway Drive (northwest corner of the Ogden Campus)
If there is any question about whether an ongoing threat exists, immediately contact WSU Police.
Federal law requires universities to notify their affiliates about any crimes that pose an ongoing threat to the community. Campus security authorities are obligated by law to report these crimes immediately.
CSAs are required to report the following crimes to WSU Police for Clery Act compliance:
- Murder/non-negligent manslaughter
- Negligent manslaughter
- Sex offenses (including rape, fondling, incest and statutory rape)
- Aggravated assault
- Motor vehicle theft
- Domestic violence
- Dating violence
- Liquor law violations
- Drug law violations
- Illegal weapons possession
Hate crimes must be reported by category of prejudice, including race, gender, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin and disability.
Statistics are also required for four additional crime categories if the crime committed is classified as a hate crime:
- Simple assault
- Destruction/damage/vandalism of property
CSAs are required to disclose only those offenses that occur on campus, in or on non-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by our school and public property within or immediately adjacent to our campus.
Failure to report Clery Act crimes may lead to disciplinary action, including, but not limited to, termination.
