Penn State’s Clery compliance coordinator, Gabriel Gates, said the University “strives to exceed the requirements of the Clery Act,” a federal law related to campus safety, during a presentation today (Nov. 16) to the Board of Trustees.
“We aim to build a higher education community standard of excellence,” Gates said about his work providing administrative and advisory support to senior management and the University-wide community. “We attempt to create an open and proactive forum that will raise awareness of campus safety initiatives and crime prevention techniques.”
The Clery Act requires all higher education institutions in the country to disclose certain information about campus crime and security policies. This includes issuing campus alerts, publishing annual security reports, disclosing missing student protocols, maintaining a daily crime log and a daily fire log, and publishing an annual fire report, Gates said.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Through a partnership with the nonprofit Clery Center for Security on Campus (CCSOC), Penn State safety and security personnel, as well as others, will participate in state-of-the-art Clery Act compliance training on June 20 and 21 on the University Park campus. Enacted in 1990, the Clery Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities in the United States to maintain precise records and openly report criminal activity on campus. Each year, the Clery Center trains hundreds of school officials and administrators to comply with the letter of the law and embrace the spirit of safety it is intended to support.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State has made further progress on interim recommendations from Louis Freeh, whose team's independent investigation continues, Kenneth Frazier, chair of the Board of Trustees' Special Investigations Task Force reported on Friday (May 4).
The task force in November retained Freeh, a former FBI director and federal judge, and his firm to conduct an independent, external investigation into how the alleged acts of the November 2011 grand jury presentment related to former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky could have happened at Penn State, where breakdowns occurred and what changes should be made for the future.
