CSA Reporting Form

If this is an emergency or there is an immediate threat, please contact the University Police immediately -- 911 or 760-750-4567


 

California State University encourages all members of the campus communities to contact UPD when they have been the victim of or have witnessed criminal actions. The Clery Act requires certain individuals that are designated as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) to promptly report allegations of Clery qualifying crimes that occur within a campus’ Clery Geography reported to them for inclusion in the ASR.

Who must report crimes?

Campus Security Authorities (CSA) responsible for prompt reporting of allegations include: campus police; individuals responsible for security; individuals/offices designated to receive crime reports; and any other official with significant responsibility for student and campus activities (including residence hall directors, coaches, faculty advisers, student life coordinators, etc).

CSAs are required to report certain criminal offenses that have occurred on campus, in student housing, on public property immediately adjacent to campus and at other university owned/controlled buildings that are separate from the main campus. Schools must also make a good faith effort to obtain statistics from local police for the same reportable locations.

How to Report

CSAs are required to promptly report to the Clery Director, or designee, all crimes, including hate crimes, which are reported to them in their capacity as CSAs, to help inform whether a timely warning or emergency notification to the campus community is warranted. A CSA’s report to the Clery Director should include, if known:

  • The crime that was reported and the information provided
  • The exact location where the crime occurred
  • The date and time the crime occurred
  • Any witness and perpetrator information
  • Victim information, unless the victim requests confidentiality

In the event the victim does request confidentiality, enough information must be obtained and provided by the CSA about the criminal incident to prevent over-reporting or “double-counting” of the incident.

CSAs are not responsible for determining authoritatively whether a crime took place, only to report the information promptly to the Clery Director if the they receive an allegation of crimes reported to them in their capacity as a CSA.

CSAs should inform the victim, or third party they are in contact with, that confidential and non-confidential resources are available that may be helpful to victims or witnesses of a crime and encourage them to utilize the resources available.
