IntroductionThe Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, that requires schools, universities and institutions across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The law is tied to an institution’s participation in federal student financial aid programs and it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. The Act is enforced by the United States Department of Education.
The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault, 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. Subsequent amendments in 2000 and 2008 added provisions dealing with registered sex offender notification and campus emergency response. The 2008 amendments also added a provision to protect crime victims, “whistle-blowers”, and others from retaliation.
Who does this policy apply to?The policy applies to employees, contract workers, students, vendors or other persons who do business with the institute. Spa Tech Institute students, employees, and faculty are reminded that they can participate in crime prevention by:
- Ensuring all doors are locked after business hours
- Required to report suspicious behavior to supervisor
- Be aware of surroundings
- Do not leave cars unlocked while in class or during work
- At night use the buddy system when leaving the building,
- Check the backseat of the car before getting in.
Spa Tech does not employ any private security. Therefore all incidents of criminal or emergency nature will receive an Internal School Investigation along with being reported to the local police department depending on the severity of the crime.
The institute is in contact with local police departments annually to collect statistics for the crime and security report.
