Campus Security Authority (CSA) Training
What you need to know if you are a Campus Security Authority at the University of Southern Indiana
The University of Southern Indiana Public Safety Department
Welcome to the University of Southern Indiana Campus Security Authority Training. This short tutorial will provide you with the basics of what you need to be aware of to meet USI’s Federal Law obligations under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, better known as the Clery Act.
The role of a CSA is crucial to the reporting of criminal incidents that occur on the campus, adjoining public property, or other properties owned, controlled, or leased by USI.We recognize that as a CSA you are not law enforcement or security personnel. This training is designed to better facilitate your understanding of CSA requirements and answer the questions you may have
Choosing a college is a major decision for students and their families. Along with academic, financial and geographic considerations, the issue of campus safety is a vital concern. The federal government began to require educational institutions to disclose safety and crime information at the urging of the parents of Jeanne Clery, a young woman brutally victimized by another student while she attended Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.
Jeanne\'s parents, Connie and Howard, discovered that students hadn\'t been told about 38 violent crimes on the Lehigh campus in the three years before her murder.
They joined with other campus crime victims and persuaded Congress to enact this law, which was originally known as the "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990"
Her parents believed that had their daughter known about the violent crime the other student had been involved in, she would have been more careful. As a result, The Clery Act requires higher education institutions to report campus safety policies and procedures as well as crime and fire statistics to current and prospective students, staff and faculty as well as the Department of Education. This information is then posted electronically for review
“To report allegations made in good faith to the reporting structure established by the institution” (Dept. of Education)
The function of a campus security authority (CSA) is to report to the official or office designated by the institution to collect crime report information, which is the Public Safety Department, those allegations of Clery Act crimes that he or she concludes were made in good faith.
Here at USI all reportable crimes should be reported to the Public Safety Department.
WHEN IN DOUBT-REPORT IT!!!!
A crime must be reported if it occurred:
If a crime occurs in a location not listed above it is not reportable under Clery. i.e. a student reports being sexually assaulted while at home during spring break.
