Clery Crime Statistics


In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act and the recent VAWA and Campus SAVE amendments, Foothill-De Anza Community College District provides this Annual Security Report for students, faculty and staff concerning security policies and the number of reported crimes and arrests occurring on our campuses.

The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to report campus crime data, support victims of violence, and publicly outline the policies and procedures they have put into place to improve campus safety. The purpose of the Clery Act is to help ensure that members of the campus community are provided with information that can help them make informed decisions about their safety.

FHDA Community College District 2023 FHDA Clery Act Annual Security Report

The Annual Security Report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Foothill-De Anza Community College District; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. 

The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning sexual assault, and other matters. This report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our campuses and education center, along with the Office of Student Affairs at each college. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Clery Act.

Our crime statistics are sent to the California Department of Justice, FBI and the District's Chancellor's Office for inclusion in the state and federal crime statistics along with Clery information.

You can also obtain a hard copy of the Annual Security Report by contacting Joe Mauss, (650) 949-7513.

More About The Clery Act

The Clery Act is named in memory of Jeanne Clery, a freshman at Lehigh University who was murdered in her dorm room in 1986. Her killer went through three propped-open doors in order to get to her room. If the college would have made this information available to students, Jeanne would have been aware of the 38 violent on-campus crimes that happened in the three years before her murder, as well as the 181 occurrences of propped-open doors in the dorm in the four months preceding her death.

After Jeanne's death, her parents Connie and Howard Clery lobbied for revolutionary policy changes that would eventually take form as the Jeanne Clery Act. Educators, families, and legislators had an open dialogue about campus safety for the first time in our country’s history.

UCR Crime Reporting


The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is run by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The program generates reliable statistics for use in law enforcement, and also provides information for the public, the media, researchers, and criminal justice students. The program has been providing crime statistics since 1930.

The UCR Program includes data from more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide, including local, county, state, tribal, federal, and campus agencies. Agencies participate voluntarily.  

Each year, the Foothill-De Anza Police Department reports crime statistics to the California Department of Justice, which in turn, forwards the information to the UCR Program. Note that the statistics may change as reports are updated or revised as new information is received. The FBI then uses that information to publish their annual Uniform Crime Report. The latest UCR can be found at the Universal Crime Reporting page at the FBI.
