Annual Security and Fire Safety Report
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, originally known as the Student Right-to-Know & Campus Security Act, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to publish an annual report that contains data related to reports of crimes occurring on campus, at off campus college facilities, residence halls and public property immediately adjacent to the campus. In addition, this report identifies specific policy statements.
The Campus Fire Safety Right-to-know Act became federal law with the passage of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. The new law requires colleges and universities that maintain on-campus housing facilities to compile an annual Fire Safety report that gives students, parents and the public current information about fires in on-campus housing.
The TSTC Police Department maintains a Crime Log with summary information about crimes reported to the College Police, and also maintains a Fire Log that records, by date reported, any fire that occurs in an on-campus student housing facility. The crime log and fire log are open for public inspection during normal business hours.
