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

Recommendation #8 To: Northridge, California State University

To ensure that they comply with the Clery Act by correctly reporting all applicable crimes and disclosing all required campus security policies, institutions should thoroughly review the Clery Act crime statistics and security policy disclosures in their annual security reports for accuracy before publication.

60-Day Agency Response

According to Northridge, in 2012, it established a two-step process to ensure that the annual security report includes all the required policy statements and disclosures as well as accurate statistics. This process includes a review by the records supervisor who writes the report. Next, the report is reviewed by the records administrator to verify its completeness. The review is completed by using a checklist of the procedures, policies, disclosures, practices, and programs as required by Education to be included in the report. (See 2013-406, p. 104)
