Because safety is a community issue, Public Safety, working in partnership with students, faculty and staff, can make this community a safer place to live, work and learn. Public Safety prepares the Annual Security Report annually for students, parents, faculty and staff at Kirkwood. The report, includes campus crime statistics for the last three years as well as safety-related policies and procedures. Information is prepared in accordance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act enacted by Congress in 1990. The act was amended a number of times, and renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and recently amended as part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act. The Clery Act, as it is commonly called, requires all institutions of higher education give timely warnings of crimes that represent a threat to the safety of students or employees, and to make public their campus security policies. It also requires that crime data is collected, reported and disseminated to the campus community, and submitted to the U.S. Department of Education. The act is intended to provide accurate, complete and timely information about safety on campus so students may make informed decisions.
