What knowledge did I have about the Clery Act?
I had no experience with the Clery Act and did not know how it affected law enforcement on a college campus.
The Clery Act applies to college campuses in regards to crimes that are associated with the college, regardless if they were on, next, or off campus. It requires colleges to distribute and educate people about crime on campus each year as a measure of prevention.
