Thank you for reviewing the 2014 Knox College Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (PDF). Knox College publishes this report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime and Statistics Act (Clery Act), the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA), which amended the Clery Act by, among other things, requiring certain policy statements and reporting regarding crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Knox College Department of Campus Safety cooperates with numerous other Knox College departments, including the Title IX Coordinator, the various offices within the Office of Student Development, Facilities Services, and Athletics, as well as other Campus Security Authorities and local emergency services agencies to compile the necessary information for this report.

The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (PDF) provides 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 Report also focuses on Knox College policies, procedures, resources, and educational programs specifically relating to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. Finally, the Report provides definitions and statistics for the previous three years regarding those incidents of crimes 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 survey statistical reports in this Report are presented in three sections: 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 Report. 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.
