Although Clery Act compliance can be time-consuming, non-compliance can jeopardize campus security, affect the reputation of your college or university, and result in large fines, which currently average $57,317 per violation.
The Clery Compliance Toolset is the only online tool which enables you to quickly and effectively develop and maintain policies and procedures, log incidents, and generate an Annual Security Report (ASR).
The Clery Compliance Toolset’s sample language and smart prompts will guide you to create or review policies and procedures for:
These policies and procedures are automatically inserted into the Annual Security Report (ASR) and can be downloaded for distribution. And, when it’s time to create policies for a new compliance year, the previous year’s information is available to use or update as needed.
As campus security staff log crime or fire incidents, the Clery Compliance Toolset uses decision-tree analysis to suggest next steps and determine whether to include the incident in the ASR, based on Clery reporting requirements.
The Clery Act requires an institution to request crime statistics from local law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction over any part of the institution’s Clery geography. Use the Clery Compliance Toolset to create a letter and document your request for crime statistics from local law enforcement agencies.
Then, record those crimes in the Clery Compliance Toolset for inclusion in the crime statistics portion of the ASR.
Use the Clery Compliance Toolset to generate and then publish the Daily Crime Log for your campus. This will ensure compliance with legal requirements and reveal information gaps.
When it’s time to generate your ASR, simply run the report from the Clery Compliance Toolset. The report will include your policies and procedures, as well as statistics for the past three calendar years. The report will also be customized with your institution’s logo and contact information.
"The Clery Compliance Toolset is easy to use, streamlines the production of our Annual Security Report and increases the collaboration with our security office for crime data. It gives me peace of mind that I’m doing my job in a high- quality way."
