The Federal Student Right-to-Know, Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act now cited as “Jeanne Clery Discloser of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Act”, requires institutions of higher learning to prepare, publish, and distribute a report concerning campus crime statistics and security policies on an annual basis through appropriate publications, mailings or computer network to all current students and employees, and to any applicant for enrollment or employment upon request. This report contains the annual report concerning specific campus arrests and crime statistics, as well as information about campus programs and activities intended to promote crime awareness, campus safety and security.
This report complies with the provisions as codified in: 1) United states Code, Title 20, section 1092 (f) and amended in 1992 and 1998; 2) United states Code of Federal Regulations, Title 34, chapter VI, Part 668, Section 668.47; and 3) Amendments: Public Law: 102-26, 102-325, 105-244 & 106-386.
This report is printed annually. You may stop by the OTC Springfield Campus Safety & Security Office located in the Information Commons Building, Room #208, 1001 E. Chestnut Expressway, Springfield Missouri, 65802, or you can request a copy be mailed to you by calling 447-6985 during normal business hours (8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday) when the college is open.
The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act (Public Law 101-542) also requires institutions to provide a timely warning to the campus community about crimes that are considered to present a continuing threat to students and employees. This warning must be done in a manner that will aid in the prevention of similar crimes.
