FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rave Mobile Safety, the trusted software partner for campus and public safety, has announced it will conduct a free live webinar aimed at clarifying the 2013 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Amendments to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) in order to further higher education institutions' compliance and campus security efforts. Scheduled for Tuesday, August 26th at 2:00 pm ET, "VAWA Amendments to Clery Clarified: What Your Campus Needs to Know" will be presented by the Assistant Executive Director of Programs for the Clery Center for Security On Campus, Abigail Boyer.
Boyer speaks nationally on topics related to the Clery Act, dynamics of sexual and domestic violence and victims' services. Previously, she was the Community Outreach Coordinator for The Crime Victims' Center of Chester County and was instrumental in developing and implementing prevention education programs for students, parents and other community members. Boyer uses her background in victim services to inform the Clery Center's communications strategy and build partnerships with valuable organizations and institutions that advance dialogue around campus safety and victim support.
Since the VAWA Amendments to the Clery Act (also known as the Campus SaVE Act), colleges and universities have tried to navigate competing advice and guidance to understand the new requirements. "VAWA Amendments to Clery Clarified: What Your Campus Needs to Know" will help officials separate fact from fiction when it comes to a "good faith effort" to comply and enhance security efforts.
During the webinar, attendees will learn:
- Basic requirements of the Clery Act.
- Details on the myths and realities of the Clery Act and new VAWA Amendments.
- What is required of campuses making a "good faith effort" to comply with new requirements, including what is expected in this year's annual security report due October 1.
- Key takeaways for addressing common Clery compliance challenges.
"The foremost concern of school officials and security leaders is to offer the safest environment possible," said Tom Axbey, chief executive officer for Rave Mobile Safety. "Our goal with this webinar is to provide a leading authority on the new Amendments, one who can eliminate confusion, clarify misconceptions, help schools fortify their compliance efforts, and as a result, increase safety on campuses."
