According to federal statute and regulations, colleges and universities are required to prepare and distribute each year an annual security report. The Campus SaVE Act details those reporting requirements. Within the report, colleges must set forth their policies on crime prevention and sex offenses and give statistics on the number of crimes reported on campus. Other reported crimes include the number of arrests for liquor law and/or drug violations and weapons possessions. The crime report is updated each September; the drug and alcohol free workplace report is updated each April. The reports may be reviewed at www.cochise.edu/securityemergency.
Beginning in the 2014-15 school year under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA, 1994), colleges are required to provide “primary prevention and awareness programs” for all incoming students, as well as ongoing prevention and awareness campaigns. For more information, contact the Vice President of Human Resources or the Dean of Student Services.
