Report 2012-032: California's Postsecondary Educational Institutions: Some Institutions Have Not Fully Complied With Federal Crime Reporting Requirements (Release Date: October 2012)

Recommendation #13 To: Laney College

To ensure that they comply with the Clery Act by correctly reporting all applicable crimes and disclosing all required campus security policies, institutions should ensure that they have a complete, accessible daily crime log, as required by the Clery Act.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From October 2014

Peralta Police has responsibility for reporting and maintaining daily crime logs in compliance with the Clery Act. Every crime on the Laney Campus is reported to the Peralta Police services and entered into the Dispatch System(CAD) maintained in the Peralta Police Services Offices at Peralta District General Services. A report number is assigned to each crime entered into the system along with the nature of the crime, date reported, date crime occurred and general location of the crime. Designated Peralta Police staff review the crimes in accordance with Clery Act requirements using the OPE Handbook and Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook. According to Peralta Police Services, crime logs are open for public viewing at the patrol station.

In response to an audit issue, Laney College now excludes vehicle burglaries from the burglary category. The 2014-15 Annual Safety Report and crime statistics for 2010, 2011 and 2012 reflect this correction.
