In November 1990, the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act (Title II, Public Law 101-542) was signed into law. This law requires universities to produce and make available certain policy statements and statistics about campus crime. In November of 1999 this Act was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or simply, The Clery Act. It is the policy of The University of Texas at San Antonio to publish by October 1st of each school year an annual security report that informs current students and employees of its safety and security policies, procedures and practices. Our Annual Security and Fire Safety Report will also disclose statistics from the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property either owned or controlled by the University and owned or controlled by student organizations recognized by the University, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA, Public Law 110-315) became law in August 2008, requiring all United States academic institutions to produce an annual fire safety report; outlining fire safety practices, standards, and all fire-related on-campus housing statistics. The Annual Security Report and the Annual Fire Safety Report are combined into one report. The fire safety section of the report contains statistical information about fires on in-campus housing for the previous three calendar years. The report can be viewed and printed (PDF) or you may get a copy from the UTSA Police Department. This information is compiled by the UTSA Fire Marshall.
The Campus Fire Log is maintained by the Office of Environmental Health, Safety, and Risk Management.
For compliance with the Campus Security Act, the Anonymous Crime Reporting Form (ACRF) is to be completed whenever any faculty or staff person with significant responsibility for student activities becomes aware of a crime that has taken place. While anyone (students, staff members, or a third party) can complete an ACRF, Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) must report when they are made aware of a Clery crime. The Jeanne Clery Act defines Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) as: individuals with campus security responsibility, individuals designated by the campus, officials with significant responsibility for student and campus activities, and the campus police department.

A list of the Campus Security Authorities is listed in the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. Training for Campus Security Authorities is available through classroom, on-line, or small groups. Contact the Clery Compliance Coordinator to schedule training.
Printed copies of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report may be obtained from the UTSA Police Department.
