CAMPUS SECURITY AUTHORITY-INTRODUCTION

Roster Form Reporting Form

Requirement of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics. Who is Jeanne Clery? In 1986, Jeanne Clery was a student at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. Another student (Joseph Henry) entered the unlocked first floor door of her building, went to the second floor and opened Jeanne’s unlocked door. He entered the room, beat her, cut her, raped and sodomized her and strangled her to death. The family believed the school did not inform students and family members about crimes on campus so they could make an assessment about attending the school. One of the major aspects of Clery is reporting crime. YOU are a part of the process and that is why we are here.
