Clery Requirements

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal statute requiring colleges and universities participating in federal financial aid programs to maintain and disclose campus crime statistics and security information. By October 1 of each year, institutions must publish and distribute their Annual Campus Security Policy & Crime Statistics Report (ASR) to current and prospective students and employees. Institutions are also allowed to provide notice of the report, a URL if available, and how to obtain a paper copy if desired. This report is required to provide crime statistics for the prior three years, policy statements regarding various safety and security measures, campus crime prevention program descriptions, and procedures to be followed in the investigation and prosecution of alleged sex offenses.

What We Report

We must file incident reports when it meets the following requirements:

  • the incident is reported to Bacone College, the local police, or a campus security authority by a victim, witness, third party or even the offender
  • the incident occurs within Bacone’s Clery-designated geography 
  • the officer or campus security authority believe the report was made in good faith (not rumor or hearsay)

Note: : Under the Clery Act, crimes are reflected in the crime statistics in the year they are reported, whether or not they occurred in that year.
