The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, also known as the Clery Act, is a federal law that requires institutions of higher education to have in place certain security and safety policies, and to disclose certain crime statistics. These policies and statistics are published every year on October 1, in the Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety report. The Clery Act also identifies certain staff, faculty and students as “Campus Security Authorities” and requires that they forward reports of crimes to designated offices on campus. The Clery Act was amended in 2013 to expand the list of crimes tracked and to broaden the rights and resources that victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking are entitled to.
UW-Platteville has three campus locations, a main campus and two branch campuses. UW- Platteville's main campus is located in Platteville, WI. The main campus has a University Police Department that provide 24/7 safety and security to the campus community. The branch campuses, located in Baraboo, WI and Richland Center, WI, do not have a University police department nor a security department, but do have excellent working relationships with local law enforcement in their respective cities. The Clery Act requires institutions with campus police or security departments to maintain a daily crime log in an effort to provide a more “real-time” snapshot of crime on campus. UW-Platteville's main campus Crime Log is available at the University Police Department upon request.
