What you need to know if you are a Campus Security Authority at UC Riverside
Many crimes, especially sexual assaults, are not reported to police.
The Clery Act requires that we gather and publish crime data to ensure that students and others know about dangers on campus.
Data is collected from a wide variety of“Campus Security Authorities”– That’s where you come in.
The law defines four categories of Campus Security Authority:
For emergencies & crimes-in-progress: Call 9-1-1
For non-emergency situations, report crimes to theUC Riverside Police Department
Other important links:
The last category of “Campus Security Authority” (or “CSA”) is defined broadly to ensure complete coverage and thorough reporting of crimes.
Many UC Riverside staff and faculty are CSA’s having “significant responsibility for student and campus activities” –including you.
Deans, student housing staff, athletic coaches, student activities coordinators, student judicial officers, and faculty advisors to student organizations.
Defined by function, not title:
If someone tells you about a crime or an incident that may be a crime, you must record the information and submit a report.
When in doubt, report it!

Be sure to document
The law requires that thecrime be reportedfor the calendar year in which it was first reported to a Campus Security Authority– not when it occurred, not when it was reported to police
A crime must be reported if it occurred:
Under the law, some off-campus locations are deemed so closely related to the University that crimes occurring at those locations are included in campus crime statistics.
Examples: Crimes occurring at student organization properties and at University owned or controlled facilities “frequently used by students”
These off-campus properties are termed “non-campus property,” defined by law to include:
A student tells you that she was raped by another student at her off-campus apartment. Although the crime did not occur at a location covered by Clery reporting, the accused student IS subject University disciplinary action for this off-campus conduct. In addition, the victim is eligible for campus assistance and resources.
