As per NYS Education Law Article 129-A: The BLS Advisory Committee on Campus Safety will provide upon request all campus crime statistics as reported to the United States Department of Education. Student Affairs staff will perform this task on behalf of the Committee by providing the Annual Security and Fire Safety report to those individuals who request the crime statistics. Crime statistics can also be reviewed at the US Department of Education website at http://ope.ed.gov/security
The report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety including topics such as: crime prevention, crime reporting policies, fire safety, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security on each campus. The reports contain crime statistics for the three previous calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by BLS; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from each campus.
This information is required by law and is provided by Brooklyn Law School.
