Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that directs colleges and universities to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. It requires colleges and universities to do everything from developing security policies to issuing crime alerts to keeping daily crime logs.

The goal of the law and its disclosure requirements “is to provide students and their families, as higher education consumers, with accurate, complete and timely information about safety on campus so they can make informed decisions,” according to a federal report.

Daily Crime Log

In accordance with the Clery Act, WCC maintains a Daily Crime Log. It’s available for review at the WCC Public Safety department, located in front of the parking structure.

Clery Act Annual Report

One of the main provisions in the Clery Act requires colleges and universities to publish an annual crime report. WCC complies by publishing the annual Campus Security Report, which presents statistics for crimes reported to the Public Safety department during the last three years. You can download the report or request a paper copy by visiting Public Safety during normal business hours.
