As a part of the Clery Act, this federal law requires a series of policies and procedures relating to safety and security. Some of the requirements the Department of Education mandates from all higher education institutions receiving federal financial aid funding are as follows:
- Annual Security Report with crime statistics and policy information relating to campus safety and security, crime prevention, missing students and sexual misconduct
- Policies and procedures relating to emergencies and fire safety
- A daily crime log
- Issue timely warnings and immediate notifications of crimes
