OAKLAND COUNTY, Michigan – Oakland Community College’s department of public safety reported to the Board of Trustees the college’s 2018 Annual Security Report which includes campus crime statistics and calls for service over the past three calendar years (2015 – 2018).
Chief of Public Safety Paul Matynka shared the report, crediting the diligence and hard work of his officers and connection to college staff and students for excellent reporting and very low crime statistics. OCC – one of the largest community colleges in Michigan – had zero violent offenses on its five campuses located throughout Oakland County.
The report is available online at www.oaklandcc.edu/publicsafety/annual-reports. It includes a handbook of safety information, procedures and emergency contacts.
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires that colleges and universities receiving federal funding maintain and publicly disclose campus crime statistics for the preceding three years, as well as security information and policies. The definitions in the Clery Act are used by all institutions in the United States to classify and report crimes under the Act.
As required by the Clery Act, this report documents the numerous education efforts that OCC has instituted for incoming and current students including a public safety section in the college’s new student orientation, participation in campus forums, campus workshops and programs through Student Life. Programs for faculty and staff are described as well, including Title IX, VAWA and Clery Act training for all faculty and staff.
With five campuses in Oakland County, OCC is Michigan’s No. 1 transfer institution, offering nearly 100 degrees and certificates. The College empowers academic and developmental experiences, allowing students to reach their potential and enhance their communities. More than 1 million students have enrolled in the college since it opened in 1965. A seven-person Board of Trustees governs OCC. Board members are elected on a non-partisan, at-large basis, serve as volunteers and are not paid. Learn more at oaklandcc.edu.
