In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act and the recent VAWA and Campus SAVE amendments, West Valley-Mission Community College District provides this Annual Security Report for students, faculty and staff concerning security policies and the number of reported crimes and arrests occurring on our campuses.
The Clery Act is named in memory of Jeanne Clery, a freshman at Lehigh University who was murdered in her dorm room in 1986. Her killer went through three propped-open doors in order to get to her room. If the college would have made this information available to students, Jeanne would have been aware of the 38 violent on-campus crimes that happened in the three years before her murder, as well as the 181 occurrences of propped-open doors in the dorm in the four months preceding her death.
After Jeanne's death, her parents Connie and Howard Clery lobbied for revolutionary policy changes that would eventually take form as the Jeanne Clery Act. Educators, families, and legislators had an open dialogue about campus safety for the first time in our country’s history.
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (commonly known as the Clery Act) is federal legislation designed to provide students, prospective students, and the public with uniform information from universities throughout the country on criminal problems and police and security issues. This brochure meets all reporting requirements as set forth in the Clery Act. Criminal statistics are updated by October 1 of each year and include data from the three previous calendar years.
