Crime Statistics

Campus crime statistics are published annually in the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report and are reported to the U.S. Department of Education each fall. Also included in the report is information on safety and prevention programs, as well as policies and procedures relating to alcohol & drugs, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and firearms and other weapons. A copy of the report is provided to new employees, and it is also available on the Public Safety page of the Lyndon website—see Quick Links below.

Lyndon is committed to ensuring that the campus remains a safe and vibrant learning environment. Safety personnel patrol the entire campus by foot and vehicle 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. To enhance safety on campus, the department also operates a student-escort service upon request. Escorts are radio-dispatched and patrol the campus as a team when not doing the actual escort.

The Department of Public Safety maintains a daily incident report log, which is available for review during regular business hours. Information on campus crime statistics, crime awareness, and safety programs may be found by clicking on the links below.

The department also oversees the College’s emergency management plan. Anyone who would like information about the plan is welcome to contact George Hacking, the director of public safety.
