After a five-month hiatus, On the Record has returned to the Torch.
On the record is a tool that can be used to track trends in police work, as well as trends in campus crime.
It can be used as a resource for research papers, a historical record of crime on and around campus in Big Rapids as well as entertainment in some regards.
Crime statistics can be followed year-to-year by visiting this link. http://www.ferris.edu/htmls/othersrv/campussafety/safety.html
In compliance with the Clery Act, the University’s department of public safety releases an annual security report and crime statistics chart that can be found on that page as well.
The report can be found at http://www.ferris.edu/HTMLS/othersrv/campussafety/doc/2013_Annual_Security_Report_Crime_Statistics_Chart.pdf.
