These reports are required by federal law and contain policy statements and crime statistics, and for UA, applicable fire safety policies and procedures. These reports also address policies, procedures and programs concerning safety and security (e.g. policies for responding to emergency situations and sexual offenses). Three years worth of statistics are included for certain types of crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the school, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus. The UA and Gadsden Center reports are available online to view or print at safety.ua.edu. You may also request a paper copy of either report from the Office of Community Services at 205-348-8361, police.ua.edu or at Box 870180, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0180.
