What is Campus Security Authority Training

The goal of the campus security authority training is to help you understand the duties and responsibilities of a campus security authority. CSAs play an indispensable role in making the campus safe for students. The crime information that they collect doesn’t just help students understand the state of their campus, but it also empowers the college administration to address the crime rate of their campus.

As you go through the campus security authority training, you’ll learn about the Jeanne Clery Act and what it expects from college administration and CSAs. Then, we’ll look at the official responsibilities of a campus security authority, including the crimes that they must report. We’ll cover the Clery geography as well.

In the next section, we’ll cover the procedure of reporting crimes; including the steps that you need to follow, the information you must gather, and which information should not be collected. By the end of the training, you’d develop a fair understanding of what a campus security authority should or should not do.

To comply with the Jeanne Clery Act, colleges and universities need to inform their campus community about the criminal activities that occur over the campus. A campus security authority must fulfill these requirements.

In essence, their job is to report crimes and compile the statistics of the crimes on campus. So, if you observe a crime, or come to know of it, ensure that it’s reported to a campus security authority. The CSA would then report it to the campus security police, who’d record it, and take appropriate actions. Such actions include issuing alerts and crime warnings to the affected parts of the campus. And, in case of an ongoing emergency, such as an active campus shooting, they’d issue emergency alerts across the campus.

Campus security authorities are the individuals in your institution responsible for collecting crime information and reporting it back to your institution’s administration. These individuals are designated by your institution and can include members of campus security, campus police, administration and academic staff, and members of your student organizations.

To report campus crime properly, CSAs need to possess a full understanding of the Jeanne Clery Act, why it’s so important, and what it requires from your educational institute. Campus security authority training can help your CSAs understand their duties and responsibilities under the law.

As you go through the campus security authority training, you’ll learn about the requirements of the Clery Act, crimes covered under the Clery Act, which parts of the campus you need to cover, and what information you need to collect and report to your administration.

Most institutions consider CSA training as mandatory. Although there’s no certification requirement under the law, if your designated responsibilities make you a CSA, it’s recommended to go through campus security authority training.
