Security and Fire Safety Report

The federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and other federal law requires colleges and universities to publish and distribute an annual security and fire safety report containing policies and procedures as well as campus crime statistics.

Old Westbury's annual security & fire safety report contains information regarding security and personal safety, including topics such as crime prevention, fire safety, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security and safety on campus. The report also contains information about crime statistics for the three previous calendar years.
