Request #19-678

Dear Sir/Madam,


Under the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), postsecondary schools are required to disclose statistics for certain crimes that occurred on campus and on public property within and immediately adjacent to school-owned buildings and property.  This requirement also includes leased space and university sponsored lodging and hotel space.  In the statistics we are required to include crimes that were reported to our department as well as crimes reported to local and state law enforcement agencies. 

The University of Oklahoma is currently compiling statistics to comply with this law and we are requesting assistance from local police agencies in the jurisdiction where the property is located.  I am requesting that your agency provide me with the crime statistics from 2018 calendar year for the following offenses (as defined according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report) that occurred at the locations specified:

Murder/Non-negligent Manslaughter

Manslaughter by Negligence




Statutory Rape



Aggravated Assault

Motor Vehicle Theft


Please specify if any of the above-listed offenses were categorized as Hate Crimes.  In addition, please include statistics for any incidents of Larceny-Theft, Simple Assault, Intimidation, or Destruction/Vandalism of Property that were categorized as Hate Crimes.  I also need the category of bias for each Hate Crime according to the eight categories for which we are required to report:  Race, Religion, Sexual Orientation, Gender, Gender Identity, Disability, Ethnicity, and National Origin. 

Please include statistics for arrests only for the following Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) categories:

Liquor Law Violations (Does not include Public Intoxication, nor DWI)

Drug Law Violations

Weapons Law Violations: Carrying, Possessing, etc.

Please include separate statistics for all  incidents of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking.  For Clery Act reporting, we are required to use the following definitions for these terms:

Domestic Violence:  The term “domestic violence” includes felony or misdemeanor crimes of violence committed by a current or former spouse or intimate partner of the victim, by a person with whom the victim shares as child in common, by a person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse or intimate partner, by a person similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction receiving grant monies, or by any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person’s acts under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction. 

Dating Violence:  The term “dating violence” means violence committed by a person (A) who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim; and (B) where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • The length of the relationship.
  • The type of relationship.
  • The frequency of interaction between the persons involved in the relationship.

Stalking:  The term “stalking” means engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonably person to (A) fear for his or her safety or for the safety of others; or (B) suffer substantial emotional distress.


I am requesting the required statistics for the following locations and dates (for locations that specify room numbers, only include statistics of crimes that occurred in the specified rooms, the public entrance, the registration lobby, and hallways, stairways, elevators between the entrance and the specified rooms) – do not include incidents that occurred in parking lots or other ‘public property’ outside of the building:


Location:    Hilton Garden Inn 2550 S. Don Roser Drive, Las Cruces, NM 88011

Date(s):   02/17/18 –  02/08/18.



We are requesting that the statistics be returned by 09/09/19.  If any of the listed crimes were reported during the subject time frame at the listed locations, please send a copy of the offense report with your reply so that we may determine and/or confirm that the offense is one that we are required to include in our annual security report.  The information may be sent electronically to Thank you for your assistance.
