The Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information on security policies and timely, annual information about crime on and around campus.


The CSU Police Department is responsible for releasing campus crime statistics to the University community. Published yearly, the Safety Update and University Drug/Alcohol Policy booklet informs the University community about important procedures, policies, crime prevention programs and crime statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus, in certain off-campus buildings and property owned or controlled by Colorado State University.

UCR Reportable Crimes

The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation. In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics. Today, several annual statistical publications, such as the comprehensive Crime in the United States, are produced from data provided by nearly 17,000 law enforcement agencies across the United States.
