Campus Security Act

Each year in compliance with federal law, Campus Security prepares a Campus Security publication for all Kirkwood students, parents, faculty and staff. In this report, you will find campus crime statistics for the last three years, as well as safety-related policy and procedures. Information is prepared in accordance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act enacted by Congress in 1990. The act was amended in 1992, 1998 and 2000. In 1998 it was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Clery Act, as it is commonly referred to, requires all institutions of higher education give timely warnings of crimes that represent a threat to the safety of students or employees, and to make public their campus security policies. It also requires that crime data is collected, reported and disseminated to the campus community, and is also submitted to the U.S. Department of Education. the act is intended to provide accurate, complete and timely information about safety on campus, so that you make informed decisions.
