Clery Act

Annual Security Report & Fire Safety Report

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal statute requiring colleges and universities across the United States to maintain and disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.  The TCU Police Department maintains a close working relationship with the Fort Worth Police Department to ensure that crimes reported directly to that department which involve the University are communicated to the TCU Police Department.  

Contained within the Annual Security Report & Fire Safety Report are three years’ worth of statistics for certain types of crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the university, or on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus.  In addition to the crime data the TCU Police Department maintains, the statistics contained in the Annual Security Report & Fire Safety Report include crimes that are reported to various campus security authorities.  The statistics reported for the categories on liquor laws, drug laws, and weapons offenses represent the number of individuals arrested or referred to campus judicial authorities for respective violations.  The report also includes statements addressing the university's policies, procedures and programs concerning safety, crime prevention, fire safety, and security - for example, policies for responding to emergency situations and sexual offenses.  

The TCU Police Department prepares this report in cooperation with the Fort Worth Police Department, federal and state agencies, and any other law enforcement jurisdiction that has taken action on our campus.  Crime statistics reported to designated officials, including but not limited to officials with significant responsibility for student and campus activities and law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction over all reportable university properties, are included in this report.   Additionally, TCU Housing and Residence Life, Title IX Office, Office of Compliance, Campus Life: Dean's Office, and the Division of Student Affairs contribute to the preparation of this report.  Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Clery Act.
