Temple U.’s Crime Log Not in Compliance With State Law
Temple University is adjusting its daily crime reports so that they will now comply with Pennsylvania’s law mandating that logs include the names and addresses of people who have been arrested and charged with a crime.
Previously, the school was not reporting this information and was not in compliance with the 2004 state law, reports the Temple News. The school newspaper pointed out the discrepancy to university officials who then reviewed the matter and agreed to make the change.
Pennsylvania’s reporting requirements go beyond those of the Clery Act.
The issue raises concerns about the state’s oversight of the law.
- Clery Act Fines Increased to $35K Per Violation
- Clery Reporting: Whose Job Is It Anyway?
- Clery Center: Incident Reporting Has Improved but Could Be Better
- Additional Clery Compliance Guidance
- Specific guidelines on emergency notification, emergency response policies and testing.
- Specific guidelines on missing students.
- Specific guidelines on the new fire incident reporting requirements.
