What Does a Campus Security Authority Do?

The function of a campus security authority is to report to the official or office designated by the institution to collect crime report information, such as the campus police or security department, those allegations of Clery Act crimes that he or she received. CSAs are responsible for reporting allegations of Clery Act Crimes that are reported to them in their capacity as an investigating or reporting incidents that they overhear students talking about in a hallway  conversation; that a classmate or student mentions during a speech, workshop, or any other form of group presentation; or that the CSA otherwise learns about in an indirect manner.

The Campus Security Authority (CSA) must complete and submit, on a timely basis, a Campus Security Authority Crime Report Form.
