Clery Act and Crime Reporting

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998

In 1990, the U.S. Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act, (Title II of Public Law 101-542) which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965. This same act has since been amended in 1992, 1998, 2000 and 2010. The 1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.  Grand Rapids Community College prepares this report in order to comply with the Clery Act.  The college compiles a report that not only lists statistics on certain crimes that are reported on campus, but also reports on security policies the college maintains. GRCC's Annual Security Report includes the previous three years and contains crime data that occurred on-campus, off-campus, buildings or property owned or controlled by GRCC; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus.

The act requires campuses to report occurrences of the following crimes: Murder/Non-negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter, sexual offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson and hate crimes. The act also requires that the following arrests and judicial referrals that occur on campus be reported: liquor law, drug abuse and weapons violations. The crime reports are made available to all current employees, students, prospective students and employees and anyone requesting a copy.
