Annual Campus Security Report
Treasure Valley Community College Crime Statistics
The Annual Campus Crime Report provides information regarding Treasure Valley Community College’s (TVCC) compliance with the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.” This Act is a federal law requiring colleges and universities in the United States (U.S.) to disclose specific information about crime statistics and security policies to current and prospective students and employees. This report provides information to students and employees to help them become aware of crime on campus. The original law, known as the “Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990,” was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools offer victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights, and was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery – a 19-year-old college student who was slain by a fellow student in her dorm in 1986. Subsequent amendments in 2000 and 2008 added provisions dealing with registered sex offender notification and campus emergency response. The 2008 amendments also added a provision to protect crime victims, “whistleblowers,” and others from retaliation. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was signed on March 7, 2013. This report reflects the regulations which became effective as a result of the VAWA Act as of July 1, 2015, pertaining to domestic violence, stalking, dating violence and sexual assault.
The Clery Act also requires higher education institutions to give timely warnings of crimes which present a threat to the safety of students or employees, and to make public their campus security policies. It requires that crime data be collected, reported and disseminated to the campus community. The act is intended to provide students and their families with accurate, complete and timely information about safety on campus so they can make informed decisions.
