These statistics include additions to what is required by the Federal Campus Crime and Security (Clery) Act and Kentucky Campus and Crime Security (Minger) Act.

Voluntary Confidential Reporting Policy
If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the University system or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, the Chief of Police or a management level designee at the University can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. Within such information, the University can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine where there is a pattern or crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this matter are counted and disclosed in the annual crimes statistics for the institution.
Limited Voluntary Confidential Reporting
The UK Police Department encourages anyone who is the victim or witness to any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Because police reports are public records under state law, the UK Police Department cannot hold reports of crime in confidence. Confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can generally be made to other UK campus security authorities, as identified below.
