The Jeanne Clery Annual Disclosure Report

History of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security
Policy and Crimes Statistics Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act 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.

 

Because the law is tied to participation in federal student financial aid programs it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. It is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education.

The "Clery Act" is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Clery who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986.

Jeanne's parents, Connie and Howard, discovered that students hadn't been told about 38 violent crimes on the Lehigh campus in the three years before her murder. They joined with other campus crime victims and persuaded Congress to enact this law, which was originally known as the "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990."

The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights, and was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery.

The law was most recently amended in 2000 to require schools beginning in 2003 to notify the campus community about where public "Megan's Law" information about registered sex offenders on campus could be obtained.

Sex Offender Registration

In accordance to the “Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act” of 2000, which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Campus Safety Department is providing a link to the State of California Sex Offender Registry. This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student. In the state of California, convicted sex offenders must register with the local law enforcement agency.

Members of the Santa Clarita Community College District who are victims or witnesses of a crime on campus should promptly report the incident to campus safety. To maintain confidentiality of victims and suspects, no personal identification information will be provided, however information in the annual report will include dates, time and locations of crimes. Confidential reports of crime can also be reported to other campus authorities.
 
Above all, personal security is most important. Reporting crime makes the campus safer for all of us. Students, staff, faculty, administrators and visitors are encouraged to take an active
role in order to minimize crime and ensure a safe environment for all.
 
Contact Campus Safety at (661) 362-3229 office, (661) 510-3882 on duty officer cell phone. In the event of an emergency situation dial 7 from any on campus phone to reach the switchboard. Any suspicious activity or person seen in the parking lots or loitering around vehicles or inside buildings should be reported to Campus Safety. In addition, you may report a crime to the following areas:
 
Vice President of Student Services - (661) 362-3498 (UCEN-279)

Voluntary Confidential Reporting Procedures

If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the Campus or Criminal Justice Systems, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, the Director of Campus Safety can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, College of the Canyons can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents occurring on campus properties. In addition this will determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution.

Counselors with Confidential Reporting Procedures – (Psychological Counseling)

Campus “Professional Counselors”, when acting as such, are not considered campus security authorities and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics. As a matter of policy, they are encouraged; if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics.
 

Counselors without Confidential Reporting Procedures (Counseling Department)

All reports will be investigated. College of the Canyons does have procedures for voluntary, confidential reporting of crime statistics. Violations of the law will be referred to campus safety and, when appropriate, to the Dean of Student Services or local law enforcement agency. When a potentially dangerous threat to the campus community arises, timely reports or warnings will be issued through email announcements, posted flyers, in-class announcements, and other appropriate means.
 

Timely Warnings

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of College of the Canyons officials, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued to staff and students.. The warning will be issued through the college email system, voice mail system, text message alert system, Campus Safety Website, campus marquee's, boards and to instructors computers located inside the classrooms.
 
Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the college may also post a notice on the campus marquee's and electronic bulletin boards providing the college community with more immediate notification. In addition our Public Information Office works closely with the local media outlets to disseminate information and alert the community to any potential threats.
 
College of the Canyons has in place an Incident Command Team that responds to campus wide emergencies as well. They may be dispersed to assist in the notification of Timely Warnings.
 
Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the Campus Safety office, by phone (661) 362-3229, or in person at the Campus Safety office located in X-8.
