UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON CLERY ACT COMPLIANCE

WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON CLERY ACT COMPLIANCE 

The University of Houston Clery Compliance Program is managed by the University of Houston Police Department, Walter Lucas, Captain- Interim Clery Compliance Coordinator. 

Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman, was assaulted and murdered in her dorm room in 1986. In 1998 the “Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act” was renamed in her memory. The Clery Act was enacted in the belief that crime awareness can prevent campus victimization.

The law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to prepare, publish, and distribute, by October 1 of each year, campus safety and security policies and crime statistics. The University of Houston does this in the form of an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. University community members are notified annually of its availability, and how and where to access the report. The Department of Education is responsible for Clery Act compliance and enforcement.

University of Houston Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

Each year, the University of Houston Police Department, under the supervision of the University of Houston System Clery Act Coordinator, collects, classifies, and counts crime reports, crime statistics, and disciplinary referrals for crimes as specified in the Clery Act, that occur (1) on campus; (2) in campus residential housing facilities; (3) within public property, including thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities, that is within the campus or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus; and/or (4) on certain non-campus property. Once the crime statistics have been gathered from internal university sources, and external law enforcement agencies, the crime statistics for the last three calendar years are included in the annual security report containing safety and security policy statements.

 

October 1st of each year, email notification will be sent to all enrolled university students, faculty, staff, and guests with a university email address. The email will include a single-click link to the most recent Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report titled for the year of its publishing. The report will include certain crime statistics for the three previous calendar years for crimes reported to have occurred on-campus property, on-campus residential housing, certain public property, and at certain non-campus property and buildings owned or controlled by the university. The report also includes information regarding pertinent university policies regarding campus safety and security. Further, the report includes information regarding fire protection systems, fire prevention policies, and reported fire statistics in all university residential housing for the three previous calendar years.

A copy of the annual report may also be obtained by contacting the University of Houston Police Department at 4051 Wheeler Avenue, Houston, Texas 77201, calling 713.743.3333, or by emailing the UHPD non-emergency email address police@uh.edu.
