In addition to the campus Police Department, Campus Security Authorities must report any crimes or incidents that may be crimes that are reported to them. You are a Campus Security Authority if you fit any the following descriptions:
If you are a Campus Security Authority you must report unless you are one of those for whom the regulations define as exempt.
The attempts to commit any of these crimes must also be reported.
The Division of Crisis Management and Preparedness is the campus office designated to oversee Clery/Minger Compliance and will ensure that crimes are properly classified. For definitions of each crime, click here.
You must report all allegations of crimes that you determine are made in good faith. Although the compliance office or law enforcement personnel may conclude after further investigation that some allegations are not substantiated by the facts or the law, you must report information that is a reported to you. Neither a formal police report nor an investigation is needed in order for a crime report to be included in the daily crime log or annual statistics.
Definitions of the crimes are available by clicking here, or contacting the Divison of Crisis Management and Preparedness or the University Police. The Division of Crisis Management and Preparedness has final responsibility for assigning the crimes to the correct reporting categories and geographical areas. Your responsibility is to provide as accurate and complete a description as possible of what happened, including the location and whether the victim or alleged perpetrator was a student.
If the crime has already been reported to another Campus Security Authority or to Police you need not report the incident again. If in doubt, report it and the Clery/Minger Act Coordinator will attempt to eliminate duplicate reports.
The crime statistics included in the Annual Security Report and daily crime log do not include any information that would identify the victim or the person accused of committing the crime. Your report to the Clery/Minger Act Coordinator should not include personally identifying information.
If you are a pastoral counselor or professional counselor, when you think it appropriate, you may tell a person you are counseling about campus procedures for reporting crimes confidentially for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics even if the person does not want to press charges or participate in an investigation. Procedures for reporting crimes confidentially must be included in the Annual Security Report.
