The Clery Act requires all higher education institutions participating in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose campus crimes by submitting an Annual Security Report by October 1st of every year. In October 2020, the U.S. Department of Education replaced the 265-page Clery Act guidelines for administrators with a 13-page Appendix with specific changes to geographical locations to include in the report, eliminated the definition of crimes, and limited individuals designated as Campus Security Authority to those with direct responsibilities over student affairs. This case study examined how campus security officers implement the new Clery Act guidelines in crime reporting. The findings indicate that the guidelines prompted procedure changes in response to the new Clery Act guidelines. In addition, this study assists in expanding the limited research on implementing the Clery Act guidelines by serving as a model for other institutions and a reference for Clery Act officers.
