CLERY ACT REPORTING LOCATION DEFINITIONS

The Clery Act requires that institutions disclose statistics for criminal offenses/referrals committed in certain geographic locations associated with your institution that include:

· On-Campus - Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution, within the same reasonably contiguous geographical area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution's educational purposes, including residence halls; and any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to paragraph (1) of this definition, that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).

For purposes of Clery reporting, SIUE classifies the following locations as on-campus locations.

The Edwardsville Campus: This includes all buildings, outlying buildings, residential facilities, property, parking lots, and roadways on the Edwardsville campus. Incidents occurring in these areas are under the jurisdiction of the SIUE Police Department.

The exception being that on-campus incidents occurring at locations on University Park Drive, North Research Drive, and South Research Drive are under the jurisdiction of the Edwardsville Police Department. The Edwardsville Police Department is canvassed each year by the SIUE Police Department for information on any Clery reportable incidents they responded to at these locations.

The Alton Campus: This includes all buildings, property, parking lots, and roadways on the Alton Campus. Incidents occurring in these areas are under the jurisdiction of the SIUE Police Department. If response time is critical, the Alton Police Department will be dispatched until the SIUE officers arrive at the scene. The Alton Police Department is canvassed each year by the SIUE Police Department for information on any Clery reportable crime they responded to on the Alton Campus.

Neither the Edwardsville Campus nor the Alton Campus has any locations which fall under the Clery definition of contiguous property.

Residence Halls and other Residential Facilities (Cougar Village, fraternity or sorority houses) located on-campus and that house students: These locations are considered a subset of the on-campus category. Institutions must disclose the total number of on-campus crimes, including those in residential facilities for students on campus, and must also make a separate disclosure limited to the number of crimes occurring in student residential facilities on campus. As a subset, the number of crimes reported for residential facilities must be less than or equal to the number of reported crimes for the on-campus category.

For purposes of Clery reporting, any reportable crime, arrest, or referral that occurs in a Residence Hall or Cougar Village are counted in the on-campus category and then broken out into the residential subset. A reportable event that occurs in a residential parking lot or on the grounds of a residential facility is only disclosed in the on-campus category and is not included in the residential facility subset. The total number of incidents/arrests/referrals will consist of the on-campus category + the non-campus category + the public property category. (The residential category is counted in the on-campus statistic.)

At this time the Alton campus has no student residential facilities. All residential facilities are on the Edwardsville Campus.

· Non-campus - Any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution; or any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct support of or in relation to, the institution's educational purpose, is frequently used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution.

For purposes of Clery reporting, SIUE classifies the numerous off-campus sites where SIUE conducts classes as non-campus locations. These off-campus course locations vary from semester to semester. Incidents occurring at these locations are under the jurisdiction of the local law enforcement agency. Each individual law enforcement agency is canvassed each year by the SIUE Police Department for information on any Clery reportable incidents they responded to at the SIUE off-campus course location in their jurisdiction.

· Public Property - All public property, which includes thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, public parking facilities, and public parks, that is immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

For purposes of Clery reporting, SIUE classifies the following locations as public property locations.

- All public property, which includes thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, public parking facilities, and public parks, that is immediately adjacent to and accessible from the Edwardsville campus.

Incidents occurring at these locations are under the jurisdiction of the Edwardsville Police Department. The Edwardsville Police Department is canvassed each year by the SIUE Police

Department for information on any Clery reportable incidents they responded to at these locations.

- All public property, which includes thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, public parking facilities, and public parks, that is immediately adjacent to and accessible from the Alton Campus. Incidents occurring at these locations are under the jurisdiction of the Alton Police Department. The Alton Police Department is canvassed each year by the SIUE Police Department for information on any Clery reportable incidents they responded to at these locations.

The Clery Act does not require the disclosure of crime statistics for public property that surrounds non-campus buildings or property.
