Campus Safety and the Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information on security policies and timely, annual information about crime on and around campus.

The Colorado State University Police Department is responsible for releasing campus crime statistics to the University community. Published yearly the Safety Update and University Drug/Alcohol Policy booklet informs the University community about important procedures, policies, crime prevention programs and crime statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Colorado State University.

The Safety Update and University Drug/Alcohol Policy booklet is available to anyone requesting a copy.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Exercise Summary

In accordance with Clery Act requirements, the university must publish information about the exercises it uses to test its emergency response plans. That exercise must include specific components, which are outlined in the document linked below. This exercise tested internal communications among first responders.

Registered sex offenders
The CSU Police Department is required to notify the University community about where public information regarding registered sex offenders can be obtained ("Megan's Law"). A current listing of sex offenders is available at the Colorado Bureau of Investigation website.

Timely warning policy
The Chief of Police and, if necessary, the Office of General Counsel will determine if an ongoing or continuing threat is a serious situation on or off campus. If so, a campus-wide "timely warning" may be issued through the Colorado State University (CSU) email system or other notification methods.
