Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool
Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE)
This analysis cutting tool, provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) of the U.S. Department of Education, was designed to provide rapid customized reports for public inquiries relating to campus crime and fire data. The data are drawn from the OPE Campus Safety and Security Statistics website database to which crime statistics and fire statistics (as of the 2010 data collection) are submitted annually, via a web-based data collection, by all postsecondary institutions that receive Title IV funding (i.e., those that participate in federal student aid programs). This data collection is required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and the Higher Education Opportunity Act. The tool allows users to get data for one school, compare data for multiple schools, generate trend data, and download custom data.
