Reports & Statistics

With recent amendments to the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (re-named the Clery Act), we are now able to publish our campus safety information for the university community via the World Wide Web. The University of Vermont's annual security report includes statistics for the previous three completed calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings owned or controlled by UVM; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report includes institutional policies concerning alcohol and drug abuse, crime prevention, the reporting of crime, sexual assault, and other important information and resource referrals. You can obtain a copy of this report below or by contacting the Department of Police Services (802-656-2027).

To view a report, first select the type, and then select the date range from the menus below.


Crime & Fire Log

A hard copy of the Crime & Fire Log is available for public inspection during University Business Hours at UVM Police Services at 284 East Avenue.

The UVM Police Services assigns an incident number for all reportable activities, both criminal and non-criminal. Crimes are in chronological order.

According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry, i.e. the nature, date, time, location and/or disposition if any of the following conditions apply:

  1. The disclosure is prohibited by law
  2. If disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim
  3. If disclosure would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual
  4. If disclosure would cause a suspect to flee or evade detection
  5. If disclosure would result in the destruction of evidence
