Dear Johns Hopkins Community:

Today we are sharing with you Johns Hopkins University’s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report for the calendar year 2020. This report includes important information regarding campus safety and related policies and procedures for the university community, and its distribution is in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (commonly known as the Clery Act).

All university faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to read the report, available on the Campus Safety and Security website at http://security.jhu.edu/_template-assets/documents/annual_report.pdf.

The report contains, for the three most recent calendar years, statistics regarding certain crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the university or an officially recognized student organization, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also contains campus security policy statements, including those related to missing student notifications, emergency notifications, fire safety, relationship violence, crime prevention, and information on how students, faculty, and staff should report crimes.

The current Johns Hopkins safety and security operation of over 1,100 personnel serves the university and health system and its 57,000 employees, 24,000 students, and more than 111,000 annual inpatient admissions. Johns Hopkins has been proactive, persistent, and vigorous in addressing public safety concerns on and around our campuses, significantly growing our total security investments over the last five years.

Thank you to our entire community for your support of safety and security measures. For more information about safety and security at the university or to receive a printed copy of the 2020 report, please visit us at http://security.jhu.edu/ or contact us at 410-516-4600.
