Annual Security Report
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (most commonly referred to as the “Clery Act”), is named for a 19-year-old student who was raped and murdered in 1986 while a freshman at Lehigh University. Her death led to national awareness of the way campus law enforcement handles the investigation of crime on campus as well how it disseminates security information and crime statistics to the campus population with the Jeanne Clery Act.
The Clery Act is a Federal law which requires colleges and universities to publish an Annual Security Report (ASR) by October 1st of each year. The ASR contains three years of crime statistics and policy statements including: sexual assault policies, victim’s rights, the law enforcement authority of campus police, and procedures for reporting crimes. The ASR also contains many useful crime prevention tips, and emergency procedures for the college district.
Preparation of the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics:
The Director of Security & Support Services produces the annual disclosure of crime statistics from the crimes reported to Security and crime statistics it receives through consultation with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, Morgan Hill Police Department, and the Hollister Police Department. Statistical information is also gathered from reports made to the Vice President of Student Services.
The Information received is statistical only, and does not include confidential information about the victim or witnesses. Statistics are provided to the Department of Education annually and that data is available to the general public by visiting http://ope.ed.gov/security
