Monday is the deadline for Ohio’s public universities and colleges to report crime statistics. The Clery Act requires them to disclose the info by October 1 of each year. But according to a survey from Ohio Auditor Dave Yost, schools reported facing a myriad of problems along the way.
Universities throughout Ohio are reporting crime statistics on their campuses as part of the Clery Act – a law that requires colleges that receive federal funding to make known crime statistics for the past three years. But State Auditor Dave Yost says he thinks the process for doing this needs to be improved.
A new report from The Ohio State University shows that crime on campus increased in 2017. The Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report reported that cases of aggravated assault, rape and burglary increased from the previous year.
