2014 Pittsburgh Campus Crime
Statistics Report

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act mandates the manner in which crime statistics are to be collected and the format in which the statistics shall be published. In addition to incidents reported to the University of Pittsburgh Police Department, statistics include offenses that were reported to the city of Pittsburgh police and to University of Pittsburgh officials having significant responsibility for student and campus activities. University of Pittsburgh officials who have contributed statistical information include, but are not limited to, deans of student life and academics, faculty advisors to student groups, residence life staff, athletic administrators, student health personnel, subcontracted security guards, and property management employees. University counselors voluntarily provide nonidentifying information on crimes reported to them.

Statistics also include crimes committed on campus as well as crimes reported on public property areas that are contiguous to campus. In accordance with the Jeanne Clery Act, crime statistics are shown by the following geographical areas:

  • On campus and within all campus buildings
  • On-campus residence halls or other student residential facilities
  • Noncampus buildings or properties—"those properties owned or leased by the institution that are used in direct support of the institution's educational purposes, are frequently used by students, and that are not within the same reasonably contiguous geographical area of the institution."
  • Public property—"all public property that is within the campus or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus."

Chart I contains the statistics for those offenses reported to the University of Pittsburgh police, city of Pittsburgh police, UPMC security, and University personnel who have significant responsibility for student life and campus activities.  

Chart II contains the statistics for those offenses reported to the University of Pittsburgh Police Department only as recorded for the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). These UCR statistics are derived, in part, from patrol areas in community areas not adjacent to campus.

Chapter 3 of the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting Act requires the release of crime statistics and crime rates to students and employees, and it requires that those statistics
be available to applicants and new employees upon request.
The crime rate is determined by a formula specified by the Uniform Crime Reporting Act, and is calculated by dividing
the number of reported crimes by the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) students and employees, then multiplying
that number by 100,000.
