University police reported only six crimes on this institution’s three campuses during 2011-2013.

Two incidents of burglary occurred on each of the Brooks City-Base, Main and Gillette Campuses, each located on the South Side but separated by several miles.

The burglaries are outlined on the Texas A&M University-San Antonio’s Annual Security Report, released Wednesday and available for public view.

The report contains crime statistics for three calendar years for certain reported crimes that occurred on Main, Brooks, Gillette and other university owned properties, or property immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campuses.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act, and the Higher Education Reauthorization Act requires the university police department, who works alongside the office of student affairs, to release the report.

The report defines burglary as, “The unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felony or a theft; includes unlawful entry with intent to commit a larceny or felony; breaking and entering with intent to commit a larceny; housebreaking, safecracking, all attempts to commit any of the aforementioned.”

University police Chief Ron Davidson was in active shooter training today and was unavailable for comment.

Copies of the report may be obtained at the University Police Department located at room 120 at the Main campus or by calling 210-784-1900.
