Clery Act / Crime Awareness
According to the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, postsecondary schools are required to disclose statistics for certain crimes that occurred on campus and on public property within and immediately adjacent to school-owned buildings and property.
Every October, an annual security report is required to be published by Alamance Community College under the above federal law. This report covers the crime statistics for the previous year and also contains Alamance Community College’s policies, procedures, and programs concerning safety and security. Three years’ worth of statistics are included for certain types of crimes which were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the school and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus. The most recent annual security report is available below.
In addition to the annual security report, the Alamance Community College Public Safety Department is required to maintain a daily crime log which contains criminal incidents and alleged criminal incidents that are reported to Public Safety. The crime log is maintained by the Clery Coordinator. The crime log for the last 60 days is available for inspection in the Clery Coordinator’s office (Room G101 – Gee Building). Any part of the crime log that is older than 60 days will be available for inspection within two business days of the request.
