Clery Act Training
Clery Act training is an important measure in creating a safe and secure campus community and ensuring Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) understand their role and responsibilities in reporting Clery crimes.
Under the Clery Act, a federal statute, institutions that receive federal funds have specific requirements to report and disclose campus crime. The Clery Act is named after Jeanne Clery, a Lehigh University freshman who was raped and murdered in her dormitory in 1986.
Complying with the Clery Act requires a number of steps. These include publishing an Annual Security Report (ASR) on crime statistics for the prior three years, maintaining a crime log, issuing timely safety warnings, making campus safety policies available, and reporting Clery Act crimes to the US Department of Education.
The Clery Act also requires schools to identify Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) – organizations or individuals designated to receive and report information about campus crimes. CSAs are typically campus police or security, individuals appointed by school policy to receive reports, and school officials, such as deans, advisors, coaches and student RAs.
