Campus Security Authorities (CSA)

The Clery Act defines “Campus Security Authorities” as:

  • A campus police/security department of an institution;
  • Any individual who has responsibility for campus security, but does not constitute a campus police/security department;
  • Any individual/organization specified in campus security policy as an individual/organization to which students/employees should report crimes; and/or
  • An official of the 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.
