Annual Security & Fire Safety Report

In 1986, Jeanne Clery was 19 years old when she was sexually assaulted and murdered in her college dorm room at Lehigh University. The Jeanne Clery Act was enacted in the belief that crime awareness can prevent crime victimization. UH Mānoa encourages its community members to report criminal incidents to UH Mānoa Department of Public Safety, but there are other ways of reporting to be sure we remain compliant with federal law.

UHM Department of Public Safety is committed to assisting all members of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa community in providing for their own safety and security. The Annual Security & Fire Safety compliance document may be found below.

This report is required by the federal Jeanne Clery Act and contains policy statements and crime statistics for UHM. The Annual Security & Fire Safety Report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety, including topics such as crime prevention, fire safety, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to the safety and security of our campus community.

The Annual Security & Fire Safety Report also contains information about 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 UHM; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. A link to the report is located below. You may also request a paper copy from the UHM Department of Public Safety.

For more information, contact the campus Clery Coordinator at clery@hawaii.edu.

This information is required by law and is provided by UH Mānoa’s Department of Public Safety, in cooperation with Univeristy of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Student Housing Services – Operations section and East-West Center.

UHM DPS has a strong working relationship with the local police department. As the primary law enforcement agency, the Honolulu Police Department monitors and responds to all reported crimes, regardless of location. Please refer to Honolulu Police Department’s District 7 Mānoa Valley Map and patrol districts for additional law enforcement information.
