Resources for Campus Security Authorities (CSA)

The function of a Campus Security Authority is to forward all criminal offense information to the official or office designated by the institution to collect crime report information. The Department of Campus Safety is responsible for collecting all criminal offense reports and allegations of such offenses of Clery Act Crimes that CSAs conclude that the reports were made in good faith.

Reportable offenses should be reported to the Campus Safety Department when you become aware of a crime. Another key responsibility you have as a CSA is to encourage crime victims and witnesses to report crimes to the Department of Campus Safety.

Who is considered a CSA?

1. Regis University’s Campus Safety Department

2. Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security, but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department.

  • What does this mean?
    An individual who is responsible for monitoring the entrance into institutional property, such as those who provide security at events, monitor access into a campus facility or residence hall. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, which is published annually, contains this information. This list is not all-inclusive as operations on campus are in flux from time to time and CSAs may be designated or undesignated as an individual or department’s functions may change.

3. Any individual or organization specified in Regis University’s statement of campus security policy and an individual or organization to which students and employees should report criminal offenses.

  • What does this mean?
    Regis University publishes a policy statement that tells the campus community who they should report a crime to on campus. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, which is published annually, contains this information.

4. Any official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities. An official is defined as any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution.

  • What does this mean?
    This is the most challenging area because the concept of “significant responsibility for student and campus activities” is quite broad. To determine specifically which individuals or organizations are CSAs for Regis University, we consider the function of that individual or office.


So, I’m a CSA. What next?

As a CSA, it is imperative that you take a few minutes to understand the responsibility of this designation. If someone reports a criminal offense to you, you must report the offense to Campus Safety as soon as possible so the crime can be evaluated for an Emergency or Timely Warning Notification for the Regis community.

Timing and Location are Critical

Take a report and gather the information the person is willing to tell you. You don’t have to prove what happened, investigate the incident or determine who was at fault.

Be sure to document:

  • Who was involved (victim and/or suspect) – not mandatory
  • When (date/time) the crime or incident occurred
  • When (date/time) it was reported to you
  • Where the reported criminal offense occurred
