Quiz: Clery-Reportable Crimes and Clery Geography Scenarios

These scenario-based questions will test your Clery knowledge as your campus prepares its Annual Security Report (ASR).

Quiz: Clery-Reportable Crimes and Clery Geography Scenarios

Although most college campuses remain closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many are taking this unprecedented “break” to work on tasks that are often superseded by other demands, including preparing annual security reports (ASRs).

ASRs are due Oct. 1 each year (although this year may be different) and many school officials tasked with preparing these reports often find themselves scrambling the final weeks leading up to the deadline.

For those of you who may be taking some of this unprecedented time to focus on Clery reports, we’ve compiled a quiz based on our last two webinars hosted by Husch Blackwell’s Hayley Hanson. At Husch Blackwell, Hanson focuses on regulatory compliance, employment, faculty, accreditation and litigation issues, and is very knowledgable of the Clery Handbook.

In our February webinar, Hanson discussed Clery geography. Its understanding Clery geography is key to ensure your campus is Clery-compliant. In this month’s webinar, Hanson dove into Clery crime statistics and common reporting failures seen by her firm and the Department of Education.

The quiz covers many Clery-related topics – from geography to campus security authority (CSA) requirements to scenario-based situations. For additional practice, scenarios similar to those you will find in this quiz can also be found in the 2016 Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting from the Department of Education.

Good luck!
