Each year, Emerson publishes a campus security report for each of its three campuses (Boston, Los Angeles, and Kasteel Well, Netherlands), in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or Clery Act.
This federal law requires institutions to publish an annual report including crime statistics for the prior three years, policy statements regarding safety and security measures, campus crime prevention program descriptions, and procedures to be followed in the investigation and prosecution of alleged sex offenses. The Clery Act also requires universities to keep an up-to-date crime log, to issue timely warnings in the event of a crime threatening the safety of students or employees, and to keep accurate crime statistics.
