Campus Security Act

The Campus Security Act 

Legal Requirements 

The Campus Security Act requires colleges and universities to: 

  • Publish an annual report every year by October 1 that contains three years of campus crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements; 
  • Disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas immediately adjacent to or running through the campus, and certain non-campus facilities and remote classrooms. The statistics must be gathered from campus safety, local law enforcement, and other University officials who have ―significant responsibility for student and campus activities; 
  • Provide ―timely warning notices of those crimes that have occurred and pose an ongoing ―threat to students and employees; 
  • Disclose in a public crime log ―any crime that occurred on campus...or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus safety department and is reported to the campus safety department. 

Spalding University Campus Safety is responsible for preparing and distributing this report. We work with many other departments and agencies, such as the Dean of Students, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Louisville Metro Police Department to compile the information.
