Crime Statistics and Reporting Information
The procedures for preparing the annual disclosure of crime statistics include reporting statistics to the College community obtained from the following sources: FBBC&TS Security (CSD), the Ankeny Police Department (APD), and non-police officials (as defined below). For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported.
A written request for statistical information is made on an annual basis to all College Deans, Directors, and Department Heads. Members of the Student Personnel Office (SPO) and other counselors may, at their discretion, also provide statistics to the CSD about cases they have dealt with where the victim chose not to report the incident to CSD or APD.
All of the statistics are gathered, compiled, and reported to the College community through our website and in written form upon request. A postcard is sent to each student and current employee on an annual basis. The postcard includes a brief summary of the contents of the website and the website URL as well as information about requesting a hard copy of the information.
The statistics in this website are published in accordance with the standards and guidelines used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook (UCRH) and the federal law (the Clery Act).
The number of victims involved in a particular incident is indicated in the statistics column for the following crime classifications: Murder/Non-Negligent Man-slaughter, Negligent Manslaughter, Forcible and Non-forcible Sex Offenses, Aggravated Assault. For example, if an aggravated assault occurs and there are three victims, this would be counted as three aggravated assaults in the crime statistics chart.
The number reflected in the statistics for the following crime categories includes one offense per distinct operation: Robbery, Burglary, Larceny, and Arson. For example if five students are walking across campus together and they are robbed, this would count as one instance of robbery in the crime statistics chart.
In cases of motor vehicle theft, each vehicle stolen is counted as a statistic.
In cases involving Liquor Law, Drug Law, and Illegal Weapons violations, each person who was arrested is indicated in the arrest statistics.
The statistics captured under the “Referred for Disciplinary Action” section for Liquor Law, Drug Law, and Illegal Weapons violations indicated the number of people referred to the Student Personnel Office (SPO) and found responsible for violating those specific laws. Being found responsible includes a referral that resulted in disciplinary action being initiated by the College and a record of the action being kept on file.
The statistics in the Hate Crime chart are separated by category of the prejudice, but the numbers for each specific crime category are part of the overall statistics reported for each year. The only exception to this is the addition of Simple Assault to the Hate Crime chart. If a hate crime occurs where there is bodily injury, the law requires that the statistic be reported as a hate crime even though there is no requirement to report the crime classification in any other area of the compliance document.
Specific Information About the Crime Statistics Reported by FBBC&TS
“Reported to CSD” includes crime statistics from incidents that were reported to CSD. If an incident was reported to CSD and APD, the statistics would be counted under the “reported to CSD” column.
“Reported to APD” includes crime statistics from incidents that were reported to APD and NOT reported to CSD. These incidents could have occurred in on-campus property, in non-campus property or on public property, as defined in the appendix. The crime statistics provided by APD are provided based on the UCR definitions as defined by the federal law.
“Reported to Non-Police” includes crime statistics from incidents reported to Deans and Department Heads as well as information offered through counselors and others who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities.
Statistics for “Residential Facilities” are also counted in the “On Campus” crime category. The law requires institutions to break out the number of “on campus” crimes that occur in residential facilities. Statistics for the category of larceny are not required by law and are included on our web site only for the purposes of acquainting students with the FBBC&TS environment.
Statistics under the heading of “Referred for Disciplinary Action” includes individuals referred to SPO and the Campus Judicial system. The numbers include referrals that are made with CSD incident reports and reports provided directly to the SPO from other members of the FBBC&TS community.
