Clery Act Information
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.
- Institutions must publish an annual report disclosing campus security policies and three years worth of selected crime statistics.
- Institutions must make timely warnings to the campus community about crimes that pose an ongoing threat to students and employees.
- Each institution with a police or security department must have a public crime log.
- The U.S. Department of Education centrally collects and disseminates the crime statistics.
- Campus community sexual assault victims are assured of certain basic rights.
- Institutions that fail to comply may be fined or lose eligibility to participate in federal student aid programs.
Preparing the Annual Disclosure
The Public Safety Division (PSD) has the responsibility of gathering the data used to prepare the annual campus crime statistics. The data is obtained from reports made to the PSD, the Glendale Police Department, campus security authorities and the college Counseling Department. In the case of the college departments, the data is gathered the same day that it is reported.
