What Would You Do in These Clery Crime Scenarios?

Here are a few potential Clery crime scenarios. Do you know which situations constitute a Clery crime and which ones don’t?

What Would You Do in These Clery Crime Scenarios?

Time is running out to submit your Annual Security Report. What would you do if faced with these Clery crime scenarios?

With Annual Security Reports (ASRs) due Oct. 1 and the new school year amongst us, increased fines and practice scrutiny have forced colleges and universities to take an even closer look at its Clery procedures.

Under the Clery Act, all colleges and universities that receive federal funding are required to disseminate a public annual security report to employees and students each year. ASRs, which must be published by Oct. 1 of each year, must also include:

  • Statistics of campus crime
  • Statements of policy, procedures and programming (e.g., Timely Warning Policy)
  • Campus facility security and access
  • Law enforcement authority
  • Incidents of alcohol and drug use
  • Prevention of and response to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence and stalking

We compiled this quiz using scenarios provided by Hayley Hanson, the leader of Husch Blackwell’s Higher Education group. Haley focuses on regulatory compliance, employment, faculty, accreditation and litigation issues. She was a speaker at this year’s Campus Safety Conference Texas, presenting on top Clery audit findings and compliance recommendations.

To protect students, staff and your campus’ reputation and wallet, be sure to stay updated on Clery Act rules and regulations and continuously review your policies and procedures. And if you’re not sure if a crime falls under Clery or not, ASK — the Clery Center is there to help!
