Contact Information Clery Act: Clery Act Compliance with the Clery Act falls under the mandate of the US Department of Education (34 CFR 668.46). The purpose of this act is to inform parents, students and employees about campus security and crimes.History of the Clery Act: History of the Clery Act During the early morning hours of April 5, 1986, Jean Clery, a 19 year old Lehigh University freshman was tortured, raped and murdered in her residence hall room. Her killer was a drug and alcohol abuser, a Lehigh University student whom Jeanne had never met. He gained access to her room by proceeding, unopposed, through three propped open doors, each of which should have been locked. He was convicted and sentenced to death. Her parents, Connie and Howard Clery found that only four percent of colleges and universities reported crime on their campuses to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Clery’s went to work to mandate that all college and universities disclose crimes that occur on their campuses and prepare an annual campus security report that shows the crime statistics and what security measures are taking place on campus. In 1990, the Campus Security Act was passed. It was later renamed the Clery Act.Campus Security Authorities: Campus Security Authorities The US Department of Education defines a Campus Security Authority as: “Any university official who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities.” Faculty members and clerical staff who do not have any responsibility for student and campus activity beyond the classroom are not included as Campus Security Authorities. Professional Counselors and Pastoral Counselors are exempt from the designation of Campus Security Authorities.How the Clery Act Affects You: How the Clery Act Affects You As a Campus Security Authority, you are required to complete an anonymous crime reporting form each time you are notified of a crime. All forms must be sent to Suzanne Molhan, Victim Advocate, in a timely manner. The information is used for statistical purposes and also to alert the campus community of any threats, especially concerning safety.Anonymous Crime Reporting Form: Anonymous Crime Reporting Form The form can be printed from the ECU Police Department website at: www.ecu.edu/policereports/AnonCrimeReportingForm5_01.pdf When a crime is reported to you and the victim/complainant does not wish to report the crime to the police department, you are required to complete this form. Please try to complete as much of the report as possible with the information you are given. Forward the form to Suzanne Molhan, Victim Advocate, located in Student Health. She will make the determination if an alert needs to be generated regarding the incident. The Police Department submits the statistical information from these reports to the US Department of Education and also includes them in their statistics listed in the Annual Campus Security Report. The statistics are broken down into categories based on the location the crime/arrest occurred.Reportable Crimes Under Clery: Reportable Crimes Under Clery Offenses Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter Negligent Manslaughter Forcible Sex Offense Non-Forcible Sex Offense Robbery Aggravated Assault Burglary Motor Vehicle Theft ArsonReportable Crimes Under Clery: Reportable Crimes Under Clery Hate Crimes for all offenses listed above and any crime in which a serious injury occurs.
