The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) is a federal law requiring all higher education institutions that participate in the federal student financial aid program to disclose campus security information, including crime statistics for the campus, off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the university, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus.
Individuals identified as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) by the Clery Act use this form to report information they receive about crimes. The information collected from submitted forms is used to compile statistical crime information that is included in the College’s Annual Security Report. Do not use this form to report a crime that requires immediate response from either the police or Ivy Tech Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness (PSEP) staff.
If a serious crime that may cause an ongoing threat is reported to a CSA, the incident should be reported immediately to campus PSEP staff or the local police by calling 911. The institution has a responsibility to notify the campus community about any crimes which pose an ongoing threat to the community, and as such, Campus Security Authorities are obligated by law to report crimes immediately.
Ivy Tech encourages everyone to report any crime that occurs on or around campus to the Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness (PSEP), campus Title IX officer or other designated Campus Security Authority. The Clery Act requires certain crimes reported to a Campus Security Authority be included in the Ivy Tech College Annual Security Report. Campus Security Authorities must be identified annually and trained by the College annually in the duties and responsibilities of being a Campus Security Authority.
Campus Security Authority (CSA) are individuals with organizations at Ivy Tech, who, because of their function for the College, have an obligation to notify the College of Clery Act Crimes that are reported to them in good faith.
These individuals typically fall under one of the following categories:
CSAs must understand their reporting obligation and the types of information they must share. Annual training is provided outlining the obligations and process for reporting
If a Campus Security Authority receives information of alleged Clery Act crime and believes it was provided in good faith, or personally witnesses an alleged Clery Act Crime, he or she should report the crime directly to the PSEP or via the CSA Incident Report Form.
The Campus Security Authority can refer to the Clery Crime Classification and Definitions form to assist in determining if the alleged crime is a Clery Act crime, as well as the Clery Act Geography Definitions form (Clery Reportable Location).
Please note that it is NOT the role of the CSA to investigate the allegation to determine whether the crime occurred and/or confront or apprehend the alleged perpetrator of the crime. That is the role of PSEP or law enforcement.
