Crime & Fire Log

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), with implementing regulations in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations at 34 C.F.R. 668.46.

The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses. Compliance is monitored by the United States Department of Education, which can impose civil penalties, against institutions for each infraction and can suspend institutions from participating in federal student financial aid programs.

The McKendree University Department of Public Safety is required to maintain and make available a public log of all reported crimes and fires that occurs on Clery Act geography. The purpose of the daily crime log is to record all criminal incidents and alleged criminal incidents that are reported to Public Safety. The log is required to have the most recent 60 day period of reported crime and fire related incidents. Each entry in the log must contain the nature, date, time and general location of each crime and disposition of the complaint, if known. Information in the log older than 60 days must be made available within two business days.
