Kutztown University leases space during the academic year at various non-contiguous locations. The following charts show the crime statistics for each of these locations along with the physical address and the Police Department with primary jurisdiction. These statistics are included in the main Crime Statistics Chart in this booklet, but are shown separately to provide additional information about each specific location.
These statistics reflect crimes that occurred when KU had control of the space and only the crimes that occurred in those spaces plus any other areas of the building that KU students or employees use to access it.
PENNSYLVANIA UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING ACT STATISTICS FOR 2010-2012
In addition to the crime statistics required by the Clery Act, the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Act requires the release of crime statistics and their rates to students and employees, upon request, to new employees and applicants for admission. The index rate is calculated based on the actual number of Full Time Equivalent (FTE) students and employees, calculated according to a state-mandated formula and includes statistics from a geographic area that extends beyond the campus. These statistics reported reflect crimes as reported to the KUPD are compiled in accordance with Pennsylvania Act 1988-73 and the College and University Information Act.
