LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A state audit of six California colleges, including one in Los Angeles County, found that all failed to fully comply with the Cleary Act, which requires colleges that receive certain federal aid programs to publish security policies and crime statistics annually, it was reported today.
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 Tines reported.
The report recommends that the colleges review and adhere to guidance related to the Cleary 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.
