Report 2017-032: Clery Act Requirements and Crime Reporting: Compliance Continues to Challenge California's Colleges and Universities (Release Date: May 2018)

Recommendation #24 To: San Jose, California State University

To ensure that it includes all criminal incidents in its daily crime logs, San Jose State should by December 2018 create and follow appropriate procedures, such as requiring supervisor review of entries or programming its records management systems to create the daily crime logs automatically.

6-Month Agency Response

SJSU has completely removed the manual work that caused the errors observed by the auditor in the Daily Crime Log.

Our Daily Crime Log now no longer requires manually re-entering data as in the previous method. In other words, our Daily Crime Log is now generated straight from our Records Management System.

This strengthened procedure is now added to our Manual of Procedures for Clery Act reporting.

We are submitting a copy of the strengthened procedure via separate email to jima@auditor.ca.gov
