The function of a CSA is to report to the official or office designated by the institution to collect crime report information, such as the campus police or security department, those allegations of Clery Act crimes that he or she receives.
CSAs are responsible for reporting allegations of Clery Act crimes that are reported to them in their capacity as a CSA.
This means that CSAs are not responsible for investigating or reporting incidents that they overhear students talking about in a hallway conversation; that a classmate or student mentions during an in-class discussion; that a victim mentions
during a speech, workshop, or any other form of group presentation; or, that the CSA otherwise learns about in an indirect manner.
A training video is available which explains the history of the Clery Act and specific information related to CSA responsibilities, the basics of Clery crimes and Clery geography. Please access this training video here.
