Learn about the Clery Report, UCSD's annual campus security report, and how to access it.
UCSD Clery Report
The annual Clery Report includes statistics about crimes and other security incidents reported to campus security authorities in the past three years.
The report also outlines policies, practices, and resources related to campus security, crime reporting, alcohol and drug use, victim assistance programs, student discipline, community safety alerts, crime prevention, access to campus facilities/ properties, and personal safety tips. In addition, the Clery Report gives instructions on how to report crimes, especially sexual assault crimes.
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, which requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. This 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 on April 5, 1986. Jeanne's parents, Connie and Howard, learned that there had been about 38 violent crimes on the Lehigh campus in the three years before her murder. They joined with other campus crime victims and persuaded Congress to enact this law.
