Clery Act Compliance

Overview

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, commonly referred to as the “Clery Act,” is a federal law that requires each university receiving federal financial aid to annually compile and report specific crime and fire statistics for the university campus and to provide other safety and crime information to members of the campus community.  The Clery Act also requires universities to:

  • Have emergency response programs, including evacuation procedures for students. 
  • Notify the community of emergencies and issue warnings of threats.
  • Maintain a daily crime log and a fire log.
  • Have policies and procedures relating to sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. 

The Office of the President has online resources about the Clery Act including operational requirements and crime reporting.

  • Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

    The Clery Act requires universities to collect and publish information about safety and security-related policies and programs, as well as information about certain crimes reported on campus (or other Clery Act geography) and fire safety.  The latest Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is available for review.

  • Campus Security Authorities (CSAs)

    “Campus security authority” or CSA, is a Clery-specific term that encompasses four groups of individuals and organizations associated with an institution. In addition to the UC Police Department, the following are Campus Security Authorities:

    1. Individuals with Campus Security Responsibility- for example, parking information kiosk operators, parking enforcement staff, bicycle patrol staff, campus safety escort staff, and campus security staff for events held at campus theaters and spectator athletic events held in campus facilities.
    2. Officials with Significant Responsibility for Student and Campus Activities- campus officials who manage or otherwise oversee student and campus activities, for example, staff responsible for campus student housing, a student center, or student extra-curricular activities; a director of athletics or a team coach; faculty advisors to student groups; staff responsible for student discipline, and campus judicial staff.
    3. Other Designated Individuals-any individual or organization identified in the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report or other campus policies as an individual or organization to which students and employees should report criminal offenses. The Title IX Officers is an example of this type of CSA.

    Identification of CSAs

    Individuals who have been identified as CSAs will be notified of their role through an annual notification and assignment of the "Clery Act Training for Campus Security Authorities" online training module. The Clery Act Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that CSAs are aware of their responsibilities and submit periodic statistics on any crimes that have been reported to them.

    Reporting

    Reports should be made immediately, or as soon as possible, by contacting either UCRPD or the Clery Act Coordinator. Prompt and accurate reporting is encouraged in order for the University to comply with Timely Warning regulations. For active threats, concerns, or emergencies, please contact UCPD by dialing 911. To report non-emergency Clery Act crimes directly to the Clery Act Coordinator, please submit a CSA Reporting Form.

    Training

    As of August 2018, the new system-wide Clery Act Training was made available through UC Learning Center (LMS) by the UC Office of Ethics, Compliance, and Audit Services (ECAS). It is the policy of the University to train CSAs in their responsibilities. The Clery Act Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that all CSAs are assigned this training.
