The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, codified at 20 USC 1092 (f) as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. The Department of Education has provided a web site http://ope.ed.gov/security/. This site provides data from thousands of colleges and universities in a convenient searchable form.
The link directly to the College of the Ozarks information follows: http://ope.ed.gov/security/Search.asp. Type in College of the Ozarks under Name of Institution and click on SEARCH.
The College is required to provide information about sexual predators in the surrounding area. Below is a link to the Missouri Sex Offender Registry. This web site provides a list of Sex Offenders by name, county, or zip code. http://www.mshp.dps.missouri.gov/MSHPWeb/PatrolDivisions/CRID/SOR/SORPage.html
Any individual on the College of the Ozarks campus who is a victim of or observes any criminal activity should report the incident immediately. Call the campus switchboard (dial 0) and ask the operator to send a Security Officer to the location. Be sure to tell the operator the nature of the problem, the location and any other information that would help the officers. It is also a good idea to give the operator a call back number. The operator will then dispatch an officer and the situation will be taken care of. The officer will most likely do a written report and will need more information at the scene.
