The Clery Act is a federal law designed to ensure that people are properly informed about campus crimes. Originally named the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, the policy was renamed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) in 1998.

Clery Act information is provided in compliance with federal law to inform current and potential SUNY Brockport students and employees of crime reporting procedures; Campus Safety law enforcement authority; crime statistics for three previous calendar years; and other matters of importance related to safety and security on campus.

SUNY Brockport, in compliance with the Clery Act, publishes its Campus Safety Report annually with updated crime statistics, as well as other information.
