Campus Security Act
- Annual Security Report
This Annual Security Report is prepared annually by the Department of Campus Safety. It includes crime and fire safety data, along with policies pertaining to campus safety, crime and fire safety. This Annual Report is published prior to October 1 of each year and distributed to all students and employees of Marshall B. Ketchum University.
- Crime Statistics
In accordance with the Clery Act, Marshall B. Ketchum University provides mandatory crime statistics as part of the Annual Security Report. The website to access this report is provided annually to all enrolled students, staff and faculty via MBKU email. Campus Safety requests crime statistics from law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction for all of MBKU’s reportable locations each year prior to the completion of the Annual Report. These statistics, along with reported crimes in specified categories, are included for the preceding three years.
Upon request, a written crime statistics report is available in the Campus Safety Office during business hours.
MBKU encourages victims of crimes to report incidents to the Department of Campus Safety regardless of how insignificant the crime may appear. To report a crime, a victim or witness should call 714.992.7892. University administrators receive reports about crime on a regular basis. Campus Safety Officers will also assist victims who want to report crimes to the Fullerton Police Department.
The Department of Campus Safety has taken several steps to prevent crime. Some of these efforts include:
- 24-hour patrol
- Officers dispatched by radio
- Alarms in key areas
- Card key entry systems in MBKU buildings, properties and designated administrative offices.
- On-campus escorts
- Video surveillance
