On October 10, 2012, the University adopted Policy AD74: Compliance with the Clery

Act.”48 The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics

Act of 1998, Pub. L. No. 101-542, 104 Stat. 2385, requires Penn State and other “eligible

institutions” to collect information on campus crime statistics and campus security policies and

to prepare and distribute an annual security report about those matters. It also requires campus

police departments to maintain daily logs of crimes reported to the department and to make that

information, to the extent feasible, available for public inspection.49 The Freeh Report criticized

the University’s compliance with the Clery Act and made several recommendations about ways

that it could be improved.

In Policy AD74, the University sets out the “parameters for compliance” with the Clery

Act for “campus security authorities” who are affiliated with Penn State. As the policy explains,

“campus security authorities” are those persons who, because of their function for the University,

have an obligation to notify the University when they learn of alleged “Clery Crimes” (homicide,

sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, and arson). They

include not only police and security officers but also administrators, coaches, faculty advisors,

and resident student advisors.

49 See 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f).


Policy AD74 requires the University to identify “campus security authorities” and ensure

that those individuals understand their reporting obligations under the Clery Act. The policy also

provides that Penn State will work with the University Police and Public Safety Department to

create and conduct Clery Act training programs. As of the date of this report, the University has

conducted Clery Act training sessions for approximately 2,600 of the estimated 3,000 “campus

security authorities” who have been identified by the Office of Human Resources. The policy

also states that the University shall maintain a daily crime log and a daily fire log and make them

available for public inspection upon request.
