To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Nevada Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
1. The total number of forcible sexual offenses that occurred on the University of Nevada-Reno campus in each year from 2017-2019 inclusive.
2. Also requested are: (1) the date of each offense, and (2) whether the offense occurred on-campus or off-campus. A forcible sexual offense is defined by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education as: "any sexual act directed against another person, forcibly and/or against that person’s will; or not forcibly or against the person’s will where the victim is incapable of giving consent" (https://www2.ed.gov/campus-crime/HTML/pdf/cs_forcible.pdf). The Office notes further: "Please count one offense per victim. In cases where several offenders commit a Forcible Sex Offense against one person, count one Forcible Sex Offense. Do not count the number of offenders."
2. The total number of nonforcible sexual offenses that occurred on the University of Nevada-Reno campus in each year from 2017-2019 inclusive. Also requested are: (1) the date of each offense, and (2) whether the offense occurred on-campus or off-campus. A nonforcible sexual offense is defined by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education as "as unlawful, non-forcible sexual intercourse" (https://www2.ed.gov/campus-crime/HTML/pdf/cs_non-forcible.pdf).
The total number of forcible and nonforcible sexual offenses is not available on the U.S. Campus Safety and Security website (https://ope.ed.gov/campussafety/#/), which covers only the years 2001-2016. However, this information should have been documented by the University of Nevada-Reno, as the Clery Act was passed in 1990.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Nevada Public Records Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on Oct. 13, 2019. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
Dear Ms. Vialpando,
In response to Public Records Request #1181, All Clery information for 2017-2018 can be found in the Annual Security Report online at https://www.unr.edu/police/clery-legal-info/report.
There is no document that contains the statistical information for 2019 in the form that you have requested. The information cannot be readily generated
from existing electronic files, nor can it be assembled without the expenditure of a substantial amount of staff time to create a customized report.
The complete information for 2019 will be available in October of 2020, when the Cleary Report is prepared for 2019.
