Crime Reporting Policy, Procedures and Responses

The UMES Department of Public Safety prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosures of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistic Act. The full text of this report can be located on this web site. This report is prepared in cooperation with the Police agencies surrounding our main campus and our alternate sites, the Office of Residence Life, the Judicial Affairs Officer and the Division of Student Affairs. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act.

To comply with Clery Act, we collect crime statistics from the local police agencies, by providing the addresses of off campus property either owned or controlled by the University, or public property immediately adjacent to campus. All local police agencies where UMES property is located or is nearby provide automated statistics for the property and radius around the property requested. These statistics may also include crimes that have occurred in private residences or businesses and is not required by law. The University does not recognize any off campus fraternity or sorority houses.

In September of every year, a postcard is mailed to all enrolled students, faculty and staff that provide the Website to access this report. Copies of the report may also be obtained at the Department of Public Safety at 11982 Dean Harris Court , Princess Anne, Maryland 21853 or by calling (410) 651-6590. All prospective employees may obtain a copy from Human Resources on the 3rd Floor of J.T. Williams Hall.
