Information for UCSF Campus Security Authorities
The Jeanne Clery Act defines a Campus Security Authority (CSA) as individual with "significant responsibility for student and campus activities," along with others responsible for campus safety and individuals specified as those for whom students and employees should report criminal offenses. This effectively includes employees of a campus police department, other individuals with campus security responsibility, and other officials who work closely with students in areas such as athletics, health care, and student life. It is important that people who are identified as CSAs comply with the Clery Act reporting requirements. CSAs are responsible for collecting and reporting certain crimes that are reported to them by students and employees.
All CSAs at UCSF are identified and trained. Anyone indentified as a CSA at UCSF should report Clery Act crimes using the Campus Security Authority Report Form below.
CSA Reporting and Training
CSAs should immediately report all Clery Act crimes reported to them in their capacity as a CSA to the UCSF Clery Act Coordinator. Specifically, CSAs should fill out the Campus Security Auithority Report Form linked below and email it to the address listed. Note: crimes reported to the UCSF Police Department are also directed the UCSF Clery Act Coordinator. If a CSA is unsure whether UCSF PD was notified of an incident, the CSA should err on the side of caution and submit the CSA Report Form.
