The annual Safety, Security and Fire Report provides information and resources about campus security, police and fire services, as well as Stanford University crime data and student housing fire statistics
Faculty and staff residing in University housing may request a security assessment by trained SUDPS crime prevention staff. Stanford building managers may also request an assessment of their facilities.
The assessment will include a review of areas such as doors, locks, windows, and the general perimeter.
If you are going to be away from your home for a period of time and wish the Department of Public Safety to check your home periodically, complete the following form and return it to SUDPS (If you are a frequent traveler, please send us updated information on your absences).

Jeanne Clery Act
Jeanne Clery was a student at Lehigh University who was raped and murdered in her dorm room.
Jeanne's parents lobbied to have a law passed that would require all institutions of higher learning that receive federal funding to publish the institution's crime statistics, identify resources for those impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, as well as policies and procedures related to timely warnings and emergency notifications. The Jeanne Clery Act was passed in 1990. This information is published annually, by October 1, in our Safety, Security, and Fire Report.
