May 4, 2018
Sheriff Manuel Gonzales Ill
Bernalillo County Sheriff' Department 400 Roma NW
Albuquerque, NM 87102
I would like to request crime statistics for the location described below for the 2017 calendar year. Pursuant to the federal "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act" (Clery Act), The University of New Haven is required to annually compile and publish crime statistics. This annual report must include statistics of specified crimes reported to local police agencies that occurred on or adjacent to campus and on University controlled or affiliated property.
The criminal offenses that the University is required to report are the following as defined by the FBI Uniform Crime Report (sex offenses are defined using the UCR-National Incident-Based Reporting System); murder/non-negligent manslaughte;r negligent manslaughter; forcible sex offenses; non-forcible sex offenses(incest and statutory rape); robbery; aggravated assault; burglary; motor vehicle theft and arson. Also, as a result of VAWA's SaVE Act provision, incidents of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking must also be reported. Additionally, we need statistics on any of the above crimes that were motivated by bias and any incidents of larceny-theft, simple assault, intimidation, or destruction/damage/vandalism of property that were motivated by bias.
I. New Reporting Requirements
VAWA's SaVE Act provision imposes new reporting requirements:
A. The Clery Act requires annual reporting of statistics for various criminal offenses, including forcible and non-forcible sex offenses and aggravated assault. VAWA's SaVE Act provision adds domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking to the categories that, if the incident was reported to a campus security authority or local police agency, must be reported under Clery. Parsed for clarity , these offenses are defined:
1. "Domestic violence" includes asserted violent misdemeanor and felony offenses committed by the victim's current or former spouse, current or former cohabitant, person similarly situated under domestic or family violence law, or anyone else protected under domestic or family violence law.
2. " Dating violence," means violence by a person who has been in a romantic or intimate relationship with the victim. Whether there was such relationship will be gauged by its length, type, and frequency of interaction.
3. "Stalking" means a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for her, his, or others' safety, or to suffer substantial emotional distress.
B. The provision adds "national origin" and "gender identity" to the hate crime categories, involving intentional selection of a victim based on actual or perceived characteristics that must be reported under the Clery Act.
The University is also required to request statistics of arrests and referrals for disciplinary action for liquor law violations, drug law violations and weapons violations. Please provide statistics for each category separately. Pursuant to the Clery Act, the University is required to report these crimes separately for a number of geographic locations. These locations include the main campus, on-campus student residential facilities, off-campus buildings and property owned or controlled by the University or a recognized student organization such as a fraternity or sorority and public property immediately adjacent to the main campus.
Therefore, I respectfully request the required statistics for the following location where The University of New Haven regularly conducts classes
• Kirtland Air Force Base, 1900 Wyoming Blvd Albuquerque, NM 87117-5604
