Campus Security Act and Disclosure of Crime Statistics
Originally known as the Campus Security Act, The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires Colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The Campus Security Office collects the crime statistics from each calendar year and is mandated to send it to the U.S. Department of Education by October 1 of each year. In addition, Campus Security maintains a crime log, which is open to the general public.
The reported crime categories are: murder; sex offenses (forcible or non-forcible); robbery; aggravated assault; burglary; motor vehicle theft; manslaughter; arson; arrests, and numbers of campus disciplinary actions for liquor law violations, drug-related violations and weapon possession; and hate crimes.
In addition, the Campus Security Office will provide, on request from any member of the College community, advice about where to obtain public "Megan's Law" information about registered sex offenders.
