A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is an individual, who by virtue of their university responsibilities and under the Clery Act, is designated to receive and report criminal incidents to the University Police Department so that they may be included and published in the university’s Annual Security Report. They have completed training on appropriately handling reporting crimes, victim relations and support, and related school policies.


Police officers, residential advisors, provosts, deans, directors, advisors, coaches, and other selected SRSU employees are CSA’s. The Clery Act defines a CSA as any of the following categories:

  • 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 offense.

  • 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.

  • A campus police department or a campus security department of an institution, e.g. any member of SRSU’s Department of Public Safety.
