Clery Act and Crime Statistics
The Central Texas College Police prepares this report to comply with the Clery Act or the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. This report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our campuses.
Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the CTCD police, designated campus officials (including directors, deans, department heads, faculty, staff advisors to students and/or student organizations) and local law enforcement agencies.
Campus crime statistics are made available yearly to all enrolled students, faculty, staff and all prospective students via the Central Texas College website and distributed through campus email and/or through distribution of hard copies. Anyone may request and obtain a copy of the campus crime statistics report at the office of the campus police during normal business hours.
The Clery Act does not require a college or university that receives a report of a campus crime to initiate an investigation, nor does it permit a college or university to release identifying information about a victim. Clery Act crime reports include only the date of the report, the date of the crime, and the general location.
On March 7, 2013, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) was signed into law. VAWA includes amendments to the Clery Act. These changes require institutions to disclose statistics, policies and programs related to dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, among other changes which you will see published in the CTCD crime statistics report.
