|The Jeanne Clery Act of 1990 requires higher education institutions to collect, report, and disseminated crime data to the campus community.
The SBU Safety & Security Department is the conduit for recording and reporting, however, Clery Act compliance is a university wide responsibility. The Clery Act mandates that institutions must disclose statistics both for crimes reported to police and crimes reported to campus security authorities. Campus security authorities include; an official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. An authority is defined as: any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution. SBU has evaluated the functions of individuals and offices to develop a specific list. Athletics directors, coaches, student government advisors, and resident advisors are some examples of job categories specifically mentioned as campus security authorities. Faculty without responsibilities outside the classroom, clerical, maintenance, food service workers, medical doctors, and mental health counselors are exempt from mandatory disclosure requirements.
Clery Act reportable offenses include Murder/Non-Negligent Manslaughter, Negligent Manslaughter, Sex Offenses, Forcible, Sex Offenses, Non-Forcible, Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, Motor Vehicle Theft, Arson, Liquor Law Arrests, Liquor Law Violations Referred For Disciplinary Action, Drug Law Arrests, Hate Crimes, Drug Law Violations Referred For Disciplinary Action, Illegal Weapons Possession Arrests and Illegal Weapons Possession Violations Referred For Disciplinary Action. CSA’s are encouraged to report crimes or alleged crimes when they occur.
