Policy for Reporting the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics:

The University Police Department prepares this report to comply with the Campus Crime Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act). The full text of this report can be located on our Web site. You will also be able to connect to our site via the LETU homepage, at www.letu.edu.
This report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our main campus and alternate sites, Housing and Residential Services, and Student Affairs offices. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act. Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the University Police Department, designated campus officials (including but not limited to directors, deans, department heads, designated HRLO staff, judicial affairs, advisors to students/student organizations and athletic coaches), and local law enforcement agencies.
These statistics may also include crimes that have occurred in private residences or businesses and is not required by law. Texas Law requires prompt, mandatory reporting to the local law enforcement agency by health care practitioners (such as those at Student Health Services) when they provide medical services to a person they know or reasonably suspects is suffering from wounds inflicted by a firearm or is a result of assaultive or abusive conduct. Counselors and Psychological Services staff inform their clients of the procedures to report crime to the University Police on a voluntary or confidential basis, should they feel it is in the best interest of the client. A procedure is in place to anonymously capture crime statistics disclosed confidentially during such a session.
Each year, an e-mail notification is sent to all enrolled students that provides the Web site to access this report. Faculty and staff receive similar annual notification with their paycheck. Copies of the report may also be obtained at the University Police Department Office located at 624 Harris Drive, or by calling (903) 233-4441. All prospective employees may obtain a copy from Human Resources in the Business Services Building, at 624 Glaske Drive, or by calling (903) 233-4170. The Web site address will be available on University employment applications.
