The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (or simply Clery Act) requires institutions of higher education that receive federal aid to report specified crime statistics on college campuses and to provide other safety and crime information to members of the campus community. The U.S. Department of Education holds enforcement authority for the Clery Act and there is a minimum penalty of $57,317 for each violation of the regulations that define the reporting requirements.

Northern Kentucky University is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Many individuals and departments are involved in campus safety and security. 

At Northern Kentucky University, we endeavor to consistently provide accurate information to our community regarding the safety of our campus. In conjunction with these efforts, we make our policies, procedures, and statistics available electronically on this site. 

Timely Warning Policy

Timely warnings are provided to heighten safety awareness by giving students, faculty, and staff notification of crimes occuring on campus property, non-campus property, or on public property immediately adjacent to and accessible from campus which are determined to present a serious or continuing threat to students and employees.

Emergency Notification Protocol

Emergency notifications are issued during emergencies or situations in which the campus is in imminent danger and individuals should take immediate safety precautions. 

Disclosure Policy

The University is required by federal law to produce and distribute an annual security report containing crimes statistics and statements of security policy to the University community, and the U.S. Department of Education. Failure to provide required information or inclusion of inaccurate information can result in fines up to $55,907 per violation. This Regulation implements the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act).
