Annual Campus Security Report and Annual Fire Report
South Dakota State University
Message from Tim Heaton, Chief of University Police
You have made a great choice to come to South Dakota State University. The University Police Department provides many services to the university community. Department contact and other valuable information is available on the University Police Department website. The safety of our community is an obligation we share with the rest of the university community. A safe community requires the engagement and active participation of all members of the community. The University Police Department works to create a strong partnership with the community to create an inviting and safe community.
Contained in this page is the university Annual Safety Report (ASR). For the sake of convenience and simplicity we have combined the ASR and the Fire Safety Report into a single document. This document provides information so members of the community can make informed decision about their own safety. Additionally, the ASR provides statistical information about crimes occurring on SDSU Clery geography, educational programs and other resources and information regarding the rights and responsibilities for both victims of crimes and those accused of committing crimes. Information is provided on the reporting of crimes, to include confidential reporting’s, and victims’ rights and responsibilities. I hope you find this information valuable!
