Campus Security Authorities (CSA)

Who are CSAs?

  • Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department.
  • Any individual or organization specified in an institution’s statement of campus security policy as an individual or organization to which students and employees should report criminal offenses.
  • An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. (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.)

Reporting Process for CSAs

CSA’s are required to report all Clery reportable incidents even if the victim wishes to remain anonymous. CSA’s should encourage victims to report the incident to UNC Charlotte Police and Public Safety (PPS). However, victims are not required to report the incident to PPS. In an effort to encourage victims to report crimes, the CSAs will have access to a Blind Reporting form. This form allows the victim to remain anonymous while allowing PPS to accurately track Clery crimes occurring within Clery reportable locations.
