Hate Crimes

Investigation of hate-motivated crimes and incidents are a priority.

Investigation of hate-motivated crimes and incidents are a priority at Adelphi University. The Department of Public Safety and Transportation’s response is necessary to assure the community that hate-motivated crimes and violence will not be tolerated, and that perpetrators of such crimes will be brought to justice.

The Clery Act requires institutions to separately report all hate crimes statistics as listed below or any other crime involving bodily injury that reveals evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the perpetrator’s bias or the perpetrator perceived the person to be in one of the protected group categories.

The campus community shall be informed of any hate-associated factors related to the below listed crimes, or of any other crimes involving bodily injury where hate crimes are involved. In addition, as of August 14, 2008, The Jeanne Clery Act was amended to include new reportable hate crimes. These Clery crimes are:

  • Criminal homicide (murder, non-negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter)
  • Sex offenses (rape, fondling, incest, statutory rape)
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Burglary
  • Motor vehicle theft
  • Arson
  • Larceny-theft
  • Simple Assault
  • Intimidation
  • Destruction/damage/vandalism of property

Reporting Hate-Motivated Crimes and Incidents

The Department of Public Safety and Transportation is responsible for collecting and reporting hate-motivated crime statistics. Hate-motivated crimes should be reported as indicated in the section “Reporting Procedures.”

These reporting categories are only reported if motivated by bias as determined by one of the bias categories (race, gender, religion, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation and disability).

Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstance to Public Safety at 516.877.3511 or in person at the Public Safety Command Center located the west side of Levermore Hall.
