The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities across the country to disclose information about crime on campus and around their campuses. The “Clery Act” is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Ann Clery who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room in April 1986. Visit the US Department of Education for more information on the Clery Act. The University Police prepare this report to comply with the Clery Act. This report is prepared in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies in the area, Housing and Residential Life, Judicial Affairs, The Dean of Students, additional security authorities and other departments which may have information necessary to comply with the Clery Act. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act. Campus crime, arrests and referral statistics include those reported to the University Police, designated campus officials (including but not limited to campus security authorities), and local law enforcement agencies. Crime statistics are collected from public property immediately adjacent to campus and all off campus locations either owned or controlled by the University. These statistics may also include crimes that have occurred in private residences or businesses and is not required by law. Copies of this report may be obtained at the University Police Main Station located on the south end of parking lot 11, or by calling (562) 985-4101. It is also available in the Police Substation located on the second level of the University Student Union room 237. Each year an e-mail notification is made to all enrolled students, faulty and staff providing a link to the Clery Report website.

Criminal Activity Off-Campus

Student organizations which are recognized and approved through the Office of Student and Life Development are required to comply with the guidelines set in the Code of Conduct for Fraternities and Sororities and/or the CSULB Regulations for Campus Activities, Organizations and the University Community.

Student Life and Development maintains contact with recognized fraternity and sorority organizations through the efforts of the Greek Life Coordinator. University Police do not provide law enforcement service to off-campus residences of recognized fraternity and sorority organizations. Fraternity and sorority off campus events are not recognized by university authorities unless they pertain to recruitment functions. Criminal activity at off campus sites and recognized fraternity and sororities residences is monitored and recorded by the Long Beach Police Department. Crimes at off-campus addresses are reflected in the Non-Campus Buildings category in this report. The University Police enjoy a close working relationship with the Long Beach Police Department when violations of federal, state, or local laws surface. This cooperative team approach addresses situations as they arise as well as future concerns.

On-Campus Student Housing Facilities

For the purposes of the Clery Act regulations, as well as the HEA fire safety and missing student notifications regulations, any student housing facility that is owned or controlled by the institution, or is located on property that is owned or controlled by the institution, and is within the reasonable contiguous geographic area that makes up the campus is considered an on-campus student housing facility.
