The Pennsylvania College and University Security Act
The College and University Security Act of 1988 governs the responsibility of PA institutions of higher education to report crime statistics and rates and to provide descriptions of security policies and procedures to applicants, matriculated students and employees. Colleges and universities are currently required to collect statistics on and report rates of crimes occurring on campus. The act requires colleges and universities to keep and maintain a daily log of campus crime activity and make it available for public inspection.
If you believe there has been a violation of one or more of the provisions of the Pennsylvania College and University Security Information Act, you may file a complaint at the Department of Public Safety. The complaint will be forwarded to the Vice President of Public Safety, who will respond in writing to the complainant within five business day from the date the complaint is received.
If, after receiving the reply to the complaint, you still feel that a violation has been committed and not corrected, you may appeal to the Executive Vice President, Treasurer and Chief Operating Officer.
