Annual Security And Fire Safety Report
Listed below is a link to the most recent annual security report for Christian Theological Seminary (CTS) as required by the Department of Education. There is also a section which reports statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes and any fires that occurred in, on or around the CTS campus. This information is provided as a service to the community in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act [20 USC 1092]. Each year CTS compiles crime statistics and submits reportable crimes to the Department of Education.
Based on their requirements, some reports of criminal activity are not reported but kept on file in a separate crime log that is kept in this office of the director of facilities management. This log is public and is available for review through a request to the Butler University Police Department
