Clery Crime & Fire Safety Report

These reports are prepared in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Campus Safety and Security Act. This report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agencies surrounding our main campus and noncampus property sites, as well as administrative offices on campus.

Campus Security Authority Reporting

Who Are Campus Security Authorities (CSAs)?

Clery Act regulations define “campus security authorities” as: 

  • An institution’s campus police or security department 
  • Other individuals with security responsibilities, such as those monitoring access to campus property (e.g., parking lots, residence halls, and athletic venues)
  • Individuals or organizations designated in the institution’s security policy as those to whom students and employees should report crimes 
  • Officials with significant responsibility for student and campus activities, such as student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings

What Are CSAs Required to Do?

A CSA who receives a report of a Clery crime from anyone—with or without a connection to the institution—must report it to the designated official or office, usually the campus security or police department. If the CSA believes the report was made in good faith, they are required to report all available information, such as the date and location of the crime, even if the victim is unknown or does not want to file a criminal charge.

A CSA should report the matter to the designated person or office whether or not they are sure the incident qualifies as a Clery crime. Here, the CSA’s obligation ends. CSAs should not attempt to investigate crimes, determine the truth, or persuade reluctant victims to come forward. Those duties belong to campus or local law enforcement.

Reporting

Smith College is committed to establishing and supporting an environment where students, faculty, employees, volunteers and guests can take full advantage of the academic and social offerings in a manner that supports the health, safety, and well-being of all individuals. 

If members of our community observe behaviors inconsistent with this goal, it is important to immediately report concerns to the appropriate College department or official for prompt and timely investigation. Members of the Smith College community designated as a Campus Safety Authority, you have two options for officially reporting concerns: 

  • For immediate emergency assistance, including assistance for imminent risk of suicide or harm to others, call 911 or the Department of Campus Safety at 413-585-2490.
  • For non-emergency concerns, a member of the community can report using this form.

Daily Crime & Fire Logs

The department maintains a Clery Crime Log and a Fire Log, updated within two business days of the department receiving a crime report, to keep the college community informed about campus crime. These logs are maintained in compliance with the Clery Act, which mandates that the college publish information about reported crimes within the campus safety department’s patrol jurisdiction and on the college’s properties that are on-campus, noncampus and public, as defined by the act. The fire log also includes fires reported within campus houses.

This online electronic log is maintained for 60 days and may also be inspected in the campus safety office Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m. To inspect logs older than 60 days, please allow two business days. The college may temporarily withhold information in some cases if there is clear and convincing evidence that the release of information would:

  • jeopardize an ongoing investigation
  • jeopardize the safety of an individual
  • cause a suspect to flee or evade detection
  • result in the destruction of evidence

Information will be disclosed once the adverse effect is no longer likely to occur.
