The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act--known as the Clery Act--is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C Section 1092(f) in 1990. This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to annually compile and publish the reported instances of criminal activity on their campuses, along with campus safety policies and procedures, and to make a log of all daily police activity and deliver timely warnings of campus threats throughout the year.
The purpose of the Clery Act is to provide students, families, and employees with accurate, complete, and timely information about campus safety so that they can make informed decisions. The University of California Police Department, Berkeley publishes this annual security report in compliance with the Clery Act, but also offers it as a resource guide, directing the reader to campus safety services and advising on crime prevention strategies.
