The Door County Sheriff's Department works with satellite college facilities to develop response plans to handle crimes and security threats to those campuses. That's required under the Jeanne Clery Act, which was enacted in 1990. It's named in memory of Clery who was murdered in her dorm room during a robbery by another student. The act requires colleges receiving federal aid to inform those on campuses of recently committed crimes or other security risks. Chief Deputy Patrick McCarty, of the Door County Sheriff's Department, says his department works with the colleges to see whether longer-term security improvements are needed.
McCarty says the Clery reports have turned out to be precautionary measures. The Door County satellite campuses have not reported any crimes since the Clery Act went into effect
