Crime Statistics and Clery Compliance

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, commonly referred to as the Clery Act, requires higher education institutions to:

  • Collect, report and disseminate crime data to the campus community and the U.S. Department of Education;
  • Provide timely warnings of reported crimes that represent a threat to the safety of students or employees; and
  • Make public their campus security policies.

To be in compliance with this legislation, the Georgetown University Police Department (GUPD) disseminates public safety alerts to faculty, staff and students, produces an annual crime report, and maintains a log of reported criminal incidents.
