"Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act"

   The university will comply with the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act". Any questions related to the implementation or the compliance of this public law (34 CFR Part 668) should be directed to the vice president for administration, located in the Sells Administration Building, or the vice president for student development, located in the Student Union Building. The vice president for administration has been designated by the university to coordinate the institution's efforts to comply with the regulations effecting the implementation of this act. Springfield and Mountain View Centeres will follow the same procedures unless specified.

Procedure for Preparing and Distributing the Report

   The department of safety and security has been designated by the university to gather the information and statistics related to the act. The director of safety and security will oversee the preparation and distribution of the annual report. The report will include crime statistics from the previous three calendar years. The report will be distributed to the university community in the student handbook (the handbook is distributed to all current students and employees) and on the safety and security web-site. Brochures containing the report will be available upon request. In addition, all prospective students and employees are informed about the availability of the report through a statement on the respective applications. The department of safety and security will present educational programs to aid the university community in understanding the Clery Act.

   The report will be published and made available by the start of the fall semester each academic year. The vice-president of administration will ensure that the annual report is submitted to the Department of Education by October 1st of each year.

The Department of Safety and Security

   The staff of the department of safety and security consists of the director, assistant director, office coordinator, three fulltime patrol officers, and student safety officers. Officers are available 365 days a year. The department of safety and security aids in enforcement of federal, state, local statutes and university regulations. While safety and security officers do not make arrests, the department of safety and security maintains a close working relationship with local law authorities. Officers do have the right to detain and identify any individual on university property. Safety and security officers cooperate with and may request assistance from local law enforcement authorities when needed. The department of safety and security provides for the safety and protection of students, faculty, staff, visitors, and the environment. In addition, the department is charged with protecting property, enforcing university regulations, and maintaining order. The entire staff strives to serve the university community. The department's mission is to promote an atmosphere free from fear for personal safety, property loss, or accidents and thereby contribute to SBU's academic excellence.
