Campus Security Authorities (CSAs), please fill out the CSA Crime Reporting Form here. If you are not a CSA, please fill out the Crime Report Form here.
What is a CSA?
The Jeanne Clery Act mandates that each institution is required to report statistics concerning the occurrence of certain criminal offenses reported to the local police agency or any official of the institution who has "significant responsibility for student and campus activities." This position is defined as a Campus Security Authority.
"Campus Security Authority" means:
Campus Security Authorities are defined by function and not title. Examples include:
|Vice Chancellor for Students||Faculty Advisors to Student Group|
|Dean of Students||Deans|
|Director of Judicial Affairs||Residential Housing Staff|
|Director of Resident Life||Student Activity Coordinators|
|Athletic Director and Team Coaches|
Each campus must identify these individuals. The Clery coordinator is responsible for ensuring campus security authorities are trained and aware of their responsibilities, and that they submit statistics for any crimes that have been reported to them. Pastoral and professional counselors are exempt from being a CSA as long as they are acting in a professional capacity at the time of the report. For this purpose:
Other individuals who have significant responsibility for campus and student activities and who counsel or advise students and employees are not exempt from reporting, even if the counseling is confidential. Examples of individuals who would not meet the criteria for being CSAs include:
Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are expected to keep records of reported incidents, including dates, times, and locations. If the CSA is not sure of the date and time, they should record the date that it was reported. If the location is unknown, any general identifying information (residence hall, academic building) concerning the offense can be helpful in the investigation. UHM Department of Public Safety annually solicits CSAs for Clery reportable statistics, and compiles them in preparation of the Annual Security Report.
If a serious crime that may cause an ongoing threat to the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa campus community is reported to anyone who is defined as a Campus Security Authority, the individual must notify UHM DPS immediately. The institution has a responsibility to notify the campus community of any crimes which pose an ongoing threat to the community, and therefore, Campus Security Authorities are obligated to report crimes immediately to UHM DPS. If there is any question about whether an ongoing threat exists, immediately contact UHM DPS at 808-956-6911.
"Campus Security Authority" is a Clery-specific term that encompasses individuals and organizations associated with an institution. For more information, see the Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting, page 74.
