CSUN Fails to Properly Report Campus Crime Statistics

State audits six California colleges for compliance with state law.

A state audit of six California colleges, including Cal State Northridge, found that all failed to fully comply with the Clery Act, which requires colleges that receive certain federal aid programs to publish security policies and crime statistics annually, it was reported Wednesday.

The schools  -- Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Cal State Northridge, Laney College in Oakland, San Bernardino Valley College, San Diego City College and University of the Pacific in Stockton --- all inaccurately reported some crime statistics and failed to disclose all required campus security policies in 2010, according to the audit cited by the Los Angeles Times.

Most of the schools failed to properly disclose emergency response and evacuation procedures, the Times reported.

The report recommends that the colleges review and adhere to guidance related to the Clery Act and thoroughly review crime statistics before publication. Four of the schools agreed with the findings, but Laney College and San Bernardino Valley College disagreed with some, according to the report quoted by the Times.
