The "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act" was signed into law in November 1990. At the time it was known as the "Student's Right to Know and Campus Security Act." The law requires educational institutions participating in student financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures and to provide statistics concerning certain crimes that occurred on or near campus. In compliance with the Act, the STCC Police Department publishes and distributes this information each year as the STCC Annual Clery Report. The report is also available in printed format in the STCC Police station located at Building 9, the Human Resource Office, through the Admissions Office, or by calling STCC Police at 413-755-4220.
This report covers the Springfield Technical Community College campus at One Armory Square, Springfield MA. In addition, Springfield Technical Community College leases office and classroom space in buildings 101 and 111 at the STCC Technology Park located at One Federal Street, Springfield, MA. The College maintains no police or security functions at the STCC Technology Park site. Persons wishing to report a crime at the STCC Technology Park site are to contact the Springfield Police by dialing 911 or their business line, 413-787-6322. This report also covers certain off-campus buildings/property owned or controlled by Springfield Technical Community College, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus.
The STCC Annual Clery Report is compiled by the STCC Police with the cooperation of the Springfield Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, Dean of Student Affairs, and Student Support Services. Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the STCC Police, designated campus officials, and local law enforcement agencies. This report also includes institutional policies concerning campus safety and security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters.
Each year, an e-mail notification is made to all faculty members, staff and enrolled students that provides the web site to access this report. Copies of the report may be obtained at the STCC Police station, Building 9 or by calling 413-755-4220. Employees and prospective employees may obtain a copy in the Human Resources Office, second floor of Building 16 or by calling the STCC Police at 413-755-4220. Notification of the availability of this report is made within the application process for both students and employees.
