Clery Safety Reports
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act—generally referred to as the Clery Act—requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to disseminate a public annual security report to all current faculty, staff and students and make its availability known to prospective students, faculty and staff.
Each California State University campus’s annual security report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the CSU, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters.
By October 1 of each year, an institution must distribute to all enrolled students and current employees its annual security report, and, if the institution maintains an on-campus student housing facility, its annual fire safety report through appropriate publications and mailings, including -
- Direct mailing to each individual through the U.S. Postal Service, campus mail, or electronic mail;
- A publication or publications provided directly to each individual; or
- Posting on an Internet Web site or an Intranet Web site
Reports must also be provided to any prospective student, or prospective employee upon request.
The primary intent of this policy is to provide uniformity in the manner in which emergency notifications required under the Clery Act are processed. The systemwide Emergency Notification Policy shall serve as the authoritative statement of policy on Emergency Notifications for each campus. This policy outlines the procedures campuses will use to immediately notify the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students and/or employees occurring on the campus.
Any member of the campus community with information believed to constitute a significant emergency or dangerous situation that poses an imminent or immediate threat shall report the information to UPD and/or by calling "911."
