Campus Security Policies and Crime

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. This includes information on criminal actions or other emergencies occurring on campus and the college’s response, policies concerning security and access to facilities, sexual harassment complaint procedures, and personal awareness and responsibilities of students to prevent and report crime. Annual crime statistics for offenses reported to the college and/or local police agencies are compiled and posted on the college website. Notification is given to current students and employees when the annual report is published prior to October 1. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, written reports, and information can be obtained from the safety and security director and campus managers.
