This information is provided to meet the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 and the Kentucky Postsecondary Education Campus Security (Minger) Act of 2000.
Campus Security Act Legal Requirements
Federal Law: The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (referred to as the Clery Act) is part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act. It requires institutions of higher education that receive federal financial aid to report specified crime statistics on college campuses and to provide other safety and crime information to members of the campus community.
State Law: The Michael Minger Life Safety Act (referred to as the Minger Act) requires institutions of higher education in Kentucky to report crime statistics to current and prospective students and employees, to maintain a daily crime log, to report a fire or threat of fire to the State Fire Marshal immediately, and to issue special reports when there is an ongoing threat to the safety of students and employees. An annual report of campus safety policies, programs and statistics must also be submitted to the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.
Compliance: CMP with the University of Kentucky Police Department (UKPD) has been designated as the compliance office for ensuring that the requirements of the Clery and Minger Acts are met by the designated Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) and the University. CMP is also responsible for issuing the annual reports and for coordinating the release of all Campus Crime Bulletins. This designation can be found in University Administrative Regulation (AR) 6:7 titled “POLICY ON DISCLOSURE OF CAMPUS SECURITY AND CRIME STATISTICS.” Full text available at: www.uky.edu/Regs/files/ar/ar6-7.pdf.
