While all universities strive to ensure the safety of their communities, the reality is that crime occurs everywhere. Many faculty and staff serve as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) — people who can take anonymous crime reports from victims and refer them to a variety of support services available to them.
CSAs are required to take crime reports whenever they believe that a reported crime is not simply rumor or hearsay. The Jeanne Clery Act requires all campuses to then collect such crime reports from CSAs; accurate statistics based in part on such reports must be included in the Annual Security Report and Daily Crime Log in order to maintain compliance.
University Police Services online training explains CSAs' roles and responsibilities. A registration page follows that allows University Police Services to swiftly and easily provide you with crime reporting forms as well as request completed forms on a monthly basis.
