Crime Statistics

Under the federal "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act," LTSP annually distributes statistics on the reported occurrences of the following offenses:

  • Criminal homicide, including non-negligent manslaughter and negligent manslaughter;
  • Robbery;
  • Aggravated Assault;
  • Forcible and non-forcible sex offenses;
  • Burglary;
  • Motor vehicle theft;
  • Arson;
  • Separately by category of prejudice, each crime listed above or others involving bodily injury that shows evidence of prejudice based upon race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or disability (hate crimes); specifically, commencing with the report for academic year 2008-2009, hate crimes will be reported based on the manner of occurrence: simple assault, intimidation, vandalism, and larceny/theft;
  • Arrests or persons referred for disciplinary action for liquor law violations, drug abuse violations, and illegal weapons possession.

5.2 Report Categories

These offenses are reported according to their occurrence in the following location categories:

Campus: (1) Buildings or property owned or controlled by LTSP within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the school in direct support of, or in a manner related to LTSP's educational purposes, including residence facilities; and (2) buildings or property that are within or reasonably contiguous to the area identified in paragraph (1) of this definition, that are owned by LTSP but controlled by another person, are frequently used by students, and support institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).

Non-campus: (1) Buildings or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution; or (2) buildings or property owned or controlled by LTSP that are used in direct support of, or in relation to, LTSP's educational purposes, are frequently used by students, and are not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution. LTSP has no non-campus buildings or property in the above categories.

Public Property: All public property, including thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities, that are within the campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. Public property statistics are compiled for the 14th Police District by the City of Philadelphia Police Department.

5.3 Sources of Data

LTSP relies on the City of Philadelphia Police Department to provide statistics on crimes committed on campus, non-campus, and public property as defined in the section of this report titled "Report Categories".

LTSP also relies on crimes reported to the campus Security Department. Although every effort is made to avoid duplication between Police Department and campus security incidents, individual incidents may be reported multiple times within the same calendar year.

5.4 Criminal Offense Statistics, 2006-2008

The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia believes that an informed public is a safety-conscious public. The following statistics are provided in compliance with Pennsylvania Act 73, College and University Security Information Act of 1988, and the Federal Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-542), as amended through the Jeanne Cleary Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (34CFR668.41 and 34CFR668.46).
