The HCCPD prepares the Annual Security Report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Holyoke Community College; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters.
The Annual Security Report is prepared in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies and the offices of Student Affairs, Athletics, and Student Activities. Each entity provides updated information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Clery Act. Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those reported to the HCCPD, designated campus officials and local law enforcement agencies.
Each year, an email notification is made to all enrolled students, faculty and staff providing information on how to access the Annual Security Report online; employees who do not have a campus email address will receive a postcard through campus mail which provides similar information. Students should familiarize themselves with of the HCC Student Handbook which states that the student's HCC email account will be used to communicate with the student body.
