Thank you for reviewing the annual Knox College Safety & Security Survey Report. Knox College publishes this report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime and Statistics Act (Clery Act) and the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.

This report includes statistics for the previous three years regarding those incidents that have occurred on the Knox campus, in certain off campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Knox College, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The Campus Safety site has also included information required by the Clery Act which includes, but is not limited to, an overview of law enforcement relationships with the Campus Safety Department, various crime and fire safety policies/procedures, emergency response/notification procedures, and protocols for missing persons.

The Knox College Department of Campus Safety cooperates with numerous other Knox College departments, including: the various offices within the Office of Student Development, Facilities Services, and Athletics, as well as local emergency services agencies to compile the necessary information for this report.

The survey statistical reports have been presented in three parts: The Knox College Campus Crime Report (Chart #1), the Knox College Annual Hate Crime Report (Chart #2), and the Knox College Fire Safety Report (Chart#3). All are available in this and other sections of the Knox College Campus Safety website. The reports are also independently available (in PDF format) on the main Campus Safety page. Copies are also available at the Campus Safety Office (368 South Prairie Street, Galesburg, IL) without charge.

Community members are encouraged to review this report and contact this office at 309-341-7255 or with any questions regarding any of the information contained within the reports.
