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.

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.

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.
