Clery Act

Your Safety Matters

The McNeese State University Police Department is dedicated to maintaining a safe and secure environment for learning and working. Because MSU-PD, like many urban campuses, does experience some crime, the McNeese Police Department wants students, faculty, staff, and the community to be aware of crime on campus.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), found at 20 U.S.C. 1092(f), requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to prepare, publish, and distribute campus security policies and crime statistics. Each year the university files a report with the United States Department of Education stating the incidences of crime on campus.

The crime statistics reported in compliance with the Clery Act are obtained from reports made to the McNeese State University Police Department, local law enforcement agencies, and Campus Security Authorities.

Requirements of the Clery Act include policy disclosures, records collection and retention (e.g. daily crime log), and information dissemination (e.g. timely warnings, annual security report).
