The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act) requires postsecondary schools participating in Title IV financial aid programs to publish an annual security report containing policies and statistical information of crimes that occurred on campus and on public property within and immediately adjacent to school-owned buildings and property. Lorain County JVS is required to disclose statistics that are reported to the institution as well as to local and state law enforcement agencies. This report will contain data for calendar years 2019, 2020, and 2021. Data is collected from local law enforcement and the School Resource Officer. The purpose of this report is to provide access to reported crimes and arrests, while also outlining policies and describing procedures essential for sustaining a safe and secure campus environment for all. Online copies can be found online or printed copies may be obtained from the Adult Career Center Office. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act amended the Clery Act. Thus, the following crimes are now included in the annual statistical reporting: domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
Lorain County JVS strives to provide a safe and secure campus for all students and staff members. All students and staff members are encouraged to report any and all suspicious campus activity immediately upon witnessing the occurrence. All students and staff should report any knowledge of a criminal or suspicious nature to campus security and the Adult Career Center Director or Supervisor. Campus administration will then take appropriate action based upon the information given by the student or staff member. When deemed appropriate, local and state law enforcement authorities will also be notified. On-Campus security is available Monday through Thursday from 8:00 AM - 10:30 PM.
