Originally known as the Campus Security Act, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Statistics Act (20 U.S.C. Section 1092(f)) is a federal law that requires many colleges and universities, such as Broward College, to disclose information on crime. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to:
Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains the crime statistics for three years and certain campus security policy and statements;
Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities (e.g., Cypress Creek Administrative Center). The statistics gathered must represent those from campus safety, contracted security and law enforcement, local law enforcement, and campus security authorities.
Provide "timely warning" notices of crimes that meet specific guidelines and have occurred and pose an ongoing threat to students, faculty, and staff.
Implement an emergency notification procedures to be utilized if there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of the students, faculty, and staff.
Make available a public crime log that contains any crime that has occurred on campus and is reported to the campus safety department.
In accordance with Title II of the Student Right To Know and Campus Security Act of 1990,
Broward College holds that students, faculty, staff, and visitors have a right to be aware of the amount of criminal activity that occurs on its campus. Broward College encourages all persons to report criminal activity that occurs on campus to Campus Safety and/or the appropriate law enforcement agency.
