Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC §1092f) requires that all colleges and universities disclose information about crimes that occurred on and around their campus to the federal government. This information is disclosed in the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASR) and is available for public view.

The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report contains 3 years’ worth of statistics of Clery Reportable crimes that occurred within the Clery Geography. Statistical data is obtained from the Florida Atlantic University Police Department, local and state law enforcement agencies, any other applicable law enforcement agencies, and Campus Security Authorities (CSAs).


The ASR is available via the Florida Atlantic Police Department:
