This is not your typical Clery Act compliance webinar, but rather the nuts and bolts of how to organize a collaborative Clery compliance system to actually achieve safer campuses.

S. Daniel Carter, President and Jay Johnson, Campus Public Safety Advisor, both of SAFE Campuses, LLC., and James Podlucky, Industry Solutions Manager, Everbridge explored a new approach to Clery compliance, including:

  • Developing and implementing policies and procedures
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provisions
  • The three Cs of crime statistics (collecting, classifying, and counting), and campus alerts

Topics covered included the development of a single, institution-wide Clery policy with procedures for each area across campus and best and promising practices for collaborative success as an institution.
