The purpose of THE CLERY ACT is to encourage accurate and timely reporting of campus crime statistics. The goal of the Clery Act is to provide information to the campus community to promote crime awareness and to enhance campus safety through providing reliable statistical records. This report form provides a uniform method to document reportable crimes and/or non-criminal hate motivated incidents that have occurred on and around Washington University Clery reportable geography, which have been reported to a Campus Security Authority (CSA) other than the Washington University Police Department. CSA’s are defined as someone who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities.
The information collected is not intended to be used to identify the victim, but rather to meet CLERY ACT requirements and to be used to increase public safety.
CLERY documentation is not satisfied by simply directing/referring the reporting party to the police department. In order for the University to satisfy the statistical reporting requirements of the Clery Act, all CSA’s are required to complete this form when offenses are reported to them.
