On November 8, 1990, President George Bush signed the "Student Right to Know & Campus Security Act of 1990". This act applies to every institution of higher education that receives federal financial aid.
Title II of the Act is called the "Campus Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990."
It requires institutions of higher education to distribute to all current students and employees, and applicants for enrollment or employment two types of information:
(1) Descriptions of policies related to campus security; and...
(2) Statistics concerning specific types of crimes.
The El Paso Community College Police Department is in compliance with this federal law.
