In this day in age, more students and parents are taking into consideration a college or university’s transparency regarding campus crime policy and statistics when choosing which school to attend.

As of Feb. 2019, colleges or universities found non-compliant with the Clery Act could see fines up to $57,317 per violation.

These reasons, among others, are why campuses can’t afford to be found in violation of the Clery Act.

There is an abundance of terminology surrounding the Clery Act, which is why in this webinar, we will focus on defining on-campus, public property, and non-campus geography. We will talk about the collection of crime statistics within these categories and how to track and update Clery geography.

Attendees will:

  • Understand how to track geography
  • Receive a better understanding of non-campus property
  • Learn what needs to be included in requests for crime statistics
