Report 2017-032: Clery Act Requirements and Crime Reporting: Compliance Continues to Challenge California's Colleges and Universities (Release Date: May 2018)

Recommendation #12 To: Humboldt State University

To ensure that it does not underreport crime statistics in its annual security reports, Humboldt State should create and begin following written procedures by August 2018 that clearly describe the Clery Act crime identification processes it will follow. These processes should include maintaining contemporaneous lists of Clery Act crimes that occur.

6-Month Agency Response

We have updated our Collecting, Classifying and Counting Clery Act Crime Data Standard Operating Procedures, that codifies our processes and procedures to guarantee that the campus does not underreport crime statistics.
