The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, which requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.
The Michael Minger Act is a Kentucky state law that requires public colleges and universities as well as private institutions licensed by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (KCPE) to report campus crimes to their employees, students and the public on a timely basis.
The Jeanne Clery, Michael Minger reports and the Crime Statistics Daily Log are available by visiting the Campus Safety website at: sullivan.edu/public-safety/. A "Crime Alert" will be issued to the university community if/when it is determined that such notification may prevent further victimization when a pattern of crime exists. Isolated incidents will not, normally, result in the issuance of a crime alert; such notifications are used when knowledge of a pattern of crime would assist members of the university community in taking precautions to prevent victimization. While due regard will be given to the privacy needs of victims, incidents that do not justify a "crime alert" but involve physical assault and/or physical contact of a rude, insolent or angry manner will be shared with the campus community with the goal of heightening safety awareness.
