The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, more commonly known as the Clery Act, requires colleges and universities to
- Publish an annual report every year by October 1* that contains three years of campus crime and fire safety statistics and certain campus security policy statements;
- Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities and remote classrooms. The statistics must be gathered from campus police or security, local law enforcement, and other College officials who have “significant responsibility for student and campus activities”;
- Provide “timely warning” notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing “threat to students and employees”;
- Implement emergency notification procedures if there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees on campus;
- Disclose in a public crime log “any crime that occurred on campus…or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus security department and is reported to the campus security department”; and
- Maintain a public fire log that records any fires that have occurred in an on-campus student housing facility.
Eckerd College Campus Safety and Security strives to not only meet but exceed these requirements.
(*U.S. Department of Education extended the 2020 Clery Act Annual Security Reporting to December 31, 2020.)
