Csas have reporting requirements

CSAs Have Reporting Requirements

  • A CSA’s function is to report to the UMW Dept. of Public Safety (campus police) those allegations of Clery Act crimes that the CSA concludes were made in good faith

  • BUT CSAs are not responsible for determining authoritatively whether a crime took place. When in doubt, report.

  • BUT CSAs should not try to apprehend an alleged crime perpetrator (That’s for law enforcement)


Csas should immediately report

CSAs Should Immediately Report

  • All crimes to the UMW Dept. of Public Safety (campus police)

  • A crime report may be the basis for determining if there is a serious or continuing threat to campus community safety, which would require an alert (i.e. timely warning)


Csas are not responsible

CSAs Are Not Responsible

  • To convince a victim to contact law enforcement if the victim chooses not to do so

  • BUT, if a victim doesn’t want the report to go any further than the CSA, the CSA should explain that he or she is required to submit the report to the UMW Dept. of Public Safety (campus police) for statistical purposes, but it can be submitted without identifying the victim
