Clery Act Compliance
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or Clery Act, requires that all colleges and universities who receive federal funding disclose specific crimes that have occurred on their campus, including university owned and controlled property, to their community and the Department of Education. These records are available for public review. It is the responsibility of the University of Jamestown to ensure that the community is informed and has the information that they need to make an informed decision about their own safety.
How to Report
There are several ways individuals may report crimes that they witnessed or that they may be the victim of. Anyone may come to the Public Safety Office, located in the Lyngstad Building, Suite 111, and file a report. You may also file an electronic report by using two of the following reporting methods:
- Report at the Public Safety Office
The Public Safety Office is located on the University of Jamestown Main Campus, in the Lyngstad Building, Suite 111. Any community member may come to the office to file a report.
- Call 701-659-0032
Any community member may call the Public Safety office at 701-659-0032 to report a crime.
- File an Electronic Crime Report
If you are the victim of a crime or a witness of a crime please complete this report. The Public Safety office will follow up upon the submission of your report.
- File an Anonymous Report
We encourage community members if they desire to report anonymously to be sure to include all necessary information to allow the university to make the correct referral or conduct the correct investigation. Any concerns you have (regarding conduct, Title IX, etc.), may be filed anonymously through this reporting system.
