Clery Report information

By Daniel Johnson, Editor In Chief

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, otherwise known as the Clery Act, is a federal law that requires CNM to disclose information about campus crime. This law applies to crimes that occur on CNM campuses, property owned or controlled by CNM, public property (thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking areas) within or immediately adjacent to campus, and non-campus locations at which approved college activities are taking place. For more information on the rules and regulations as well as general information on the Clery Act please visit.
