Crime Reporting - Clery Act/DCS Report

The Federal Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 11/10 (U.S. Public Law 101-542) requires that all colleges and universities make available statistics of crimes, which is conducted through appropriate publications, on an annual basis.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA) also requires that colleges and universities publish certain information on their websites for all potential and enrolled students and employees.

We are committed to assisting all members of the CCC community in providing for their own safety and security. Each year the college updates its security report, which discloses the procedures, practices and programs CCC uses to keep students and employees safe and its facilities secure.

All members of the college community are required to notify College Safety of any situation or incident on our campuses that involves a significant emergency or dangerous situation that may involve an immediate or ongoing threat to the health and safety of students and/or employees on campus.
