Jeanne Clery Act

JEANNE CLERY DISCLOSURE OF CAMPUS SECURITY POLICY AND CAMPUS CRIME STATISTICS ACT

PURPOSE

In 1998, the federal government passed the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act", formerly known as The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990. This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to disclose the reported instances of criminal activity on their campus.

The law specifically requires the reporting of violent crime, burglary, and motor vehicle theft, as well as a summary of arrests and disciplinary referrals for liquor law, drug abuse, and weapons violations.

SAFETY AND SECURITY IN THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY

At the Ventura County Community College District, the safety and well being of our students, faculty and staff are always at the top of our agenda.

This information is a part of our effort to ensure that this collaborative endeavor is effective. We hope that you will read it carefully and use the information to help foster a safe environment for yourself and others on campus.
