Campus Crime Reporting

Notification of college crime statistics is either mailed in post card format or sent by e-mail each year to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff. Prospective students are advised of the availability of the crime statistics through recruiters and also through the College Police website.  Federal law, through the Department of Education, mandates that Yavapai College provide the college community with this information annually. The annual report is available on the College Police website, and also available for distribution at the College Police Department.
