Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) – Make a Mandatory Report. At the University of Florida, maintaining a warm and welcoming campus environment is one of our highest priorities. Campus Security Authorities are a vital part of our institutional effort in working together for safe campuses. Campus Security Authorities are defined by the Clery Act and designated by the University of Florida. Your responsibilities as a Campus Security Authority are straightforward – to report certain crimes identified by the Clery Act that are reported to you which occurred on or around UF campuses and properties.
There are four categories of CSAs, as defined by the Clery Act:
- A campus police department or a campus security department of an institution.
- Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department (e.g., an individual who is responsible for monitoring the entrance into institutional property).
- 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.
