The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act, signed in 1990, is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), with implementing regulations in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations at 34 C.F.R. 668.46.
The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses.
The Clery Act requires colleges to designate certain individuals as Campus Security Authorities (CSA).
Part 2: Definitions
The Clery Act is a federal statute that provides the campus community with timely, accurate, and complete information about crime and the safety of the campus so that they can make informed decisions to keep themselves safe.
A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is an individual, who, by virtue of their college responsibilities and under the Clery Act, is designated to receive and report criminal incidents to the LSC Safety and Security department. Incidents must be immediately reported so that they may be properly investigated and published in the college’s Annual Security Report. CSA must complete training on how to appropriately handle the reporting of crimes, victim relations and support, and related school policies.
Part 3: Authority to designate CSA
The President or designee will designate specific individuals as CSA.
