What is a CSA?

The Clery Act requires institutions to collect crime reports from various individuals and organizations that Clery considers to be CSAs to include:

  • University police officers and security officers and individuals outside university police who have campus security responsibilities
  • Individuals or organizations specified in the Clery Annual Security Report to which students and employees should report crimes
  • A university official who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities

When are CSAs required to report?

Under the Clery Act, a crime is reported when it is brought to the attention of a CSA by a victim, a witness, other third party, or the offender. It does not matter if the person involved in or reporting the crime is associated with the university. If you are a CSA and receive a report of an alleged crime, you are required to report the alleged crime to the official or office designated by the university to compile the institution's Clery crime disclosures.
