The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy & Campus Crime Statistics

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy & Campus Crime Statistics Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or “Clery Act” is a federal law that requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses (20 U.S.C. §1092). Compliance is monitored by the United States Department of Education, which can impose civil penalties, up to $58,328 per violation against institutions for each infraction and can suspend institutions from participating in federal student financial aid programs.

2021 ANNUAL SECURITY REPORT


The Semiannual Security Report 

In accordance with Act 447 of the 2021 Regular Legislative Session of the Louisiana Legislature and Board of Regents Policy on Power-Based Violence & Sexual Misconduct, BRCC publishes on its website a semiannual security report to contain updated campus security policies and campus crime statistics.

The report shall be updated and posted by April tenth (10) and October tenth (10) of each academic year and must include, at a minimum, all information relative to such policies and statistics specified in the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, 20 U.S.C. §1092 (Clery Act). The report shall be posted in a prominent location that is readily accessible from the main landing page of the Institution’s website.  As a best practice, Board of Regents (BOR) recommends including information related to statistics of incidents of power-based violence.

Baton Rouge Community College’s Semiannual Security Report

BRCC’s 2021 Annual Security Report recently published contains campus security policies and campus crime statistics for the past three (3) years spanning 2018, 2019, and 2020. This data only includes reportable offenses required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act or “Clery Act”.   The crime statistics chart includes Clery Act data and information related to statistics of incidents of power-based violence, which is defined as any form of interpersonal violence intended to control or intimidate another person through the assertion of power over the person.

As a best practice in the Board of Regents (BOR) Uniform Policy on Power-Based Violence, crime statistics that appear in RED on the Semiannual Security Report are recommended to be reported as well. This includes, but is more expansive than sexual misconduct and Title IX misconduct.  To review the College’s Semiannual Security Reports and updated statistics, please click below.
