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

UMD Annual Security Crime and Fire Report 2012  is published and distributed in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Clery Act is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information on security and safety policies and certain timely and annual information about crime on and around campus.

These publicized statistics are meant to warn students, employees, and applicants of the prevalence of campus crime. Employees and students must be given interim crime reports which include statistics on murder, forcible sex offenses, non-forcible sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny (theft), and motor vehicle theft. The annual report must also describe how to report crimes and emergencies on campus.
