The Annual Security and Safety Report will be published and distributed by October 1st of each year. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report will include policy statements, general crime statistics, arrest, and disciplinary referral statistics, and hate crime statistics.
The Annual Security and Safety Report must be distributed to all currently enrolled students and all employees by October 1st of each year. The Annual Security and Safety Report must be distributed to all enrolled students and current employees in one of two ways: 1. Directly by publications and mailings via the US Postal Service; campus mail, email, or a combination of these methods or 2. Posting the Annual Security and Safety Report on an Internet or Intranet website that is reasonably accessible to enrolled students and to current employees. This method may be used only if individual notices about the Annual Security and Safety Report are distributed to each student and employee by October 1. The notice should include: statement of the report's availability; a list and brief description of the information contained in the report; the exact address (URL) of the Internet or Intranet website at which the report is posted (a direct link to the annual security report must be provided); and a statement that the school will provide a paper copy of the annual security report upon request. This request does not have to be made in writing. Individuals may not be charged fees for copies of the Annual Security and Safety Report, nor can the University include the annual security report in any publication for which a fee is charged.
The Annual Security and Safety Report must also be provided to prospective students and prospective employees upon request.
Submitting Crime Statistics to the US Department of Education:
Saint Louis University is not required to send the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report to the Department of Education (DOE). The University, however, is required to submit the crime statistics from the report. During late summer, DOE conducts the annual Campus Safety and Security Survey. This Web-based survey is used to collect the statistical data from the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. The data is then posted on the DOE public website for use by higher education consumers. The site is located at http://www.ope.ed.gov/security. Each year a few weeks prior to the collection, DOE sends a letter and a registration certificate to the Chief Executive Officer of Saint Louis University. The certificate contains information necessary to access the survey and enter data.

Timely Warnings of Crime
The SLU-Madrid Campus develops Campus Safety Alert notices for the University community to notify its members about serious crimes against people that occur on campus, where it is determined that the incident may pose an ongoing threat to members of the University community. The Campus Safety Alert notice will include information that will promote safety and will aid in the prevention of similar crimes. The decision to issue a Campus Safety Alert is made on a case-by-case basis considering the validity of the information about the crime reported, facts surrounding a crime, the nature of the crime, continuing danger to the campus community, and risk of compromising law enforcement efforts.
In an effort to provide timely notice to the University community, and in the event of a serious incident which may pose a threat to members of the University community, an email Campus Safety Alert notice is sent to all students, faculty and staff. The alerts are generally written by the Executive Staff members. Updates to the University community about any particular case resulting in a Campus Safety Alert notice may be distributed via email, may be posted on the SLU-Madrid website, or may be shared with Billiken News.
