What knowledge did I have about the Clery Act?

2 Answers

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.

What would you do if your partner on duty found his wife cheating on him in the parking lot and decided to confront them?

2 Answers

There are various questions when it comes to your integrity and criminal history. I recommend you are honest no matter what. They'll find out regardless, and they're far more forgiving if you are honest about any indiscretion, rather than try to lie about it.

The interview was nothing short of an interrogation. As with any law-enforcement agency they will dive into your entire past history pretty much from birth to present date
