What is Clery Act or Campus Security Act?
On April 5, 1986, Jeanne Clery was raped and murdered in her dorm room at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. After her parents learned that her death was due to negligent practices of security at the college after numerous reports were made regarding safety, it spurred The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act which was implemented in 1990. The Act was further amended in 2013 to include the Violence Against Women Act also known as VAWA. These acts require all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to disclose information regarding crime on campus, support for victims or witnesses of crimes, and prevention programs designed to assist victims or witnesses of these crimes as well as efforts to improve campus safety and inform the institutions, students, employees, faculty, staff and the public of crime in or around the institution. The information will be made available annually with the latest crime statistics reported to the institution or law enforcement agencies in the area. Institutions are required to report their crime statistics, campus security/law enforcement policies, and reporting procedures to the U.S. Department of Education and the campus community annually.
ACS will provide a timely warning to the campus community of any known occurrences of crimes in the immediate campus vicinity that are reported to campus officials and are considered to represent a serious or continuing threat to students or employees. If ACS is aware of such a crime or pattern or criminal activity, unless issuing a notification will compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to or otherwise mitigate the emergency, ACS will initiate our emergency outreach system through our email system. Students are encouraged to have an updated email address that they check regularly.
Depending on the circumstances of the crime, ACS may also post a notice on the college’s website www.acs.edu, providing the college community with more immediate action. A copy of the notice will also be posted outside on the front door of the entry to the college.
