About 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 CSU Police Department is responsible for releasing campus crime statistics to the university community. The Annual Fire and Safety Report 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, on non-campus properties owned or controlled by Colorado State University, and on public property surrounding or immediately adjacent to campus.

A printed copy of the Annual Fire and Safety Report is available upon request at the CSU Police Department in Green Hall.

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 and emergency notifications

The Chief of Police and, as appropriate, other members of the Public Safety Team will determine if there is a serious, ongoing or continuing threat on or off campus. If so, a campus-wide timely warning may be issued through the Colorado State University email system or other notification methods. When there is an immediate threat to health and safety, the university will issue an emergency notification. More information regarding timely warnings and emergency notifications is provided in the Annual Fire and Safety Report.

Campus Security Authority Information

A Campus Security Authority is a university employee, student, or contractor that is federally mandated under the Clery Act with the responsibility to report crimes to the university that are reported to them. The Campus Security Authority role falls under one of the following four categories:

  1. You are a member of the CSU Police Department.
  2. You are not a member of the CSU Police Department but are responsible for campus security.
  3. You have been designated by CSU as someone to whom crimes should be reported. (for example, Title IX Coordinator)
  4. You are someone with significant responsibility for student and campus activities. (for example, a director who oversees housing, an athletic director, a faculty advisor to a student group or club)
