Essential Job Duties

Reporting to the NC State University Chief of Police, the Director of Clery Act Compliance works collaboratively with various offices at the University to ensure the institution’s compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and associated regulations.

The Director of Clery Act Compliance will manage NCSU’s compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and associated regulations. Responsibilities are University-wide and highly visible. This position will report to the University Chief of Police. This position provides leadership and works collaboratively with various offices throughout the University to develop policies, procedures, activities, and protocols to ensure the institution’s full and complete compliance with all provisions of the Clery Act.

As Director of Clery Act Compliance, this position is responsible for interpreting the Clery Act and developing policies and practices that result in accuracy and compliance with all Clery provisions including; an annual security report, a public Daily Crime Log, emergency notification requirements, testing, annual fire report, and reports of missing students. In order to ensure accuracy in Clery Act reporting, this position will also work with the Police Records Administrator in the maintaining and reporting of various statistical data.

Much of the Clery reporting is based on police incident reports that must be carefully classified per the Clery Handbook in addition to the usual classification per the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS), and NC General Statutes. Judgment and interpretation are often required to ensure the correct classification, in addition to consulting with the Officer who wrote the incident report originally. For example, the Clery Act requires separate reporting of sexual crimes and sex offenders as well as hate crimes which means the Director of Clery Act Compliance must educate Officers and work closely with them to ensure accurate Police incident classification.

The Clery Act mandates that NCSU report a wide variety of statistical data in addition to that provided by Police incidents reports. Examples include maintaining a list of all University personnel classified as Campus Security Authorities, or annual submittal of all properties owned and/or leased by the University since Clery Act provisions apply to all University controlled real estate. This position will be responsible for identifying the correct source for each statistic required by the Clery Act and working collaboratively with appropriate personnel to maintain accurate data and provide it on a timely basis.
