Policy Statement

 
Because safety is a community issue, Campus Security, works together in partnership with students, faculty, and staff to make this community a safer place to live, work, and learn
 
Reason for Policy
 
Each year, in compliance with federal law, Campus Security publishes a complete report on safety and security policies, along with the type of crime on campus.
 
The Policy
 
Each year in compliance with federal law, Campus Security prepares a Campus Security publication for all Kirkwood students, parents, faculty, staff, and the community. In this report, you will find campus crime statistics for the last three years as well as safety related policies.
A daily crime log is also maintained and is available to the public for viewing.
 
Information is prepared in accordance with Crime Awareness and Campus Security act enacted by Congress in 1990. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000, and 2008. In 1998, the law was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and the 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 Higher Education. The act is intended to provide accurate, complete, and timely information about safety on campus so people may make informed decisions.
