CLERY CRIME STATISTICS
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to summarize and disclose specific information on an annual basis by October 1 of each year. The summary of required information includes the past three (3) calendar years of campus crime statistics in specified crime categories, fire safety data, and certain safety policy statements.
UNCSA provides this information through distribution of the annual Campus Safety and Security Handbook. Each member of the UNCSA community will be notified via e-mail message when the report, in Handbook format, is available. This message will include a link to the web for electronic access to the Handbook. Upon request, printed copies will be provided to prospective students and employees, current UNCSA community members, and other interested persons by the Department of Police and Public Safety.
The Clery Crime Statistics are provided on the following pages - www.uncsa.edu/campuspolice/crimestats.pdf.
