The federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires colleges and universities, both public and private, participating in federal student aid programs to disclose campus safety information, and imposes certain basic requirements for handling incidents of sexual violence and emergency situations.
Disclosures about crime statistics and summaries of security policies are made once a year in an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, and information about specific crimes and emergencies is made publicly available on an ongoing basis throughout the year.

On Oct. 1 of each year, the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is posted in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, also known as the Clery Act. An email is sent out campus-wide advising that the report has been published and provides a direct link to the report. These statistics are also available in the Department of Security office located on the first floor of Shaw Hall.
In accordance with the Clery Act, Florida Tech maintains an electronic daily crime log in the Department of Security. The Department of Security is located in Shaw Hall.
The crime log for the most recent 60-day period may be inspected during normal university business hours. Any person may have supervised access to the crime log, whether or not they are associated with Florida Tech. Any portion of the log older than 60 days will be made available within two business days of a request.
Please note that Florida Tech may temporarily withhold inspection or copying of any crime log containing confidential information, or in cases where there is clear and convincing evidence that release of the information would jeopardize an ongoing investigation, jeopardize the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence.
The Department of Security maintains a fire log that records, the incident number, nature of the fire, date reported, date occurred and general location of fire (reported in residential halls only). The Daily Fire Log is open for public inspection and available at the Department of Security located in Shaw Hall during normal business hours.
The Clery Act requires that Florida Tech discloses Clery crimes based on where the crimes occur. These property designations are known as “Clery Geography.” The Clery Act has designated three geographic categories for reporting. Crimes that occur outside of the three geographic categories are not subject to the Clery Act annual reporting requirements or to the community notification requirements.
