The following statistics are reported criminal acts required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and the Higher Education Opportunity Act ((Clery Act). The Clery Act is codified at 20 usc 1092 (f) under the authority of the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education and is a federal law requiring colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. (For additional information, go to http:/ope.ed.gov/security.)
The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to publish an annual report containing three years of crime statistics and selected security policy statements (including sexual assault policies, which assures basic victim’s rights), the law enforcement authority of campus safety, and where community members should go to report crimes.
Please be aware that these statistics reflect incidents that have been reported to the Department of Campus Safety. The Department of Campus Safety at New England College will investigate any questionable behavior that comes to their attention. However, it is important to note that some victims prefer to NOT report incidents to Campus Safety, but choose to confide in other confidential sources.
As required by the Federal Campus Safety and Security Act of 1991, a statistical report on campus crime at New England College is available upon request at the Campus Safety Building. This information is also available on line by going to http:/ope.ed.gov/security.
Additionally, colleges are required to maintain a daily crime log detailing alleged criminal incidents that are reported to the campus police or security department. The daily crime log is also available for inspection at the Campus Safety Building.
