Campus Security Authority (CSA) Definitions and Reporting Information

Definition of Campus Security Authority (CSA)

  1. A campus police department or campus security department of a College or University.
  2. Any individual who has responsibility for campus security but who is not a member of the campus police department or the campus security department. (e.g. parking enforcement staff, campus safety escort staff, special event venue security).
  3. Any individual specified in the University’s statement of campus security policy as an individual to which students and employees should report criminal offenses.
  4. An individual of the University who has significant responsibility for student andcampus activities. (e.g. student housing, student discipline, athletic directors/coaches and campus student judicial officials)  

Reporting Instructions

  1. If the reported incident constitutes a threat to the safety of the Randolph College community, in addition to completing this form, the CSA shall immediately telephone the Campus Security Department at (434) 947-8000.
  2. Confidential and anonymous reports are accepted. However, if the reporting party is a victim of a sex offense, he/she shall also be encouraged to report the crime directly to Campus Security and/or other Student Services.
  3. While second hand reports are inherently unreliable and are difficult to verify, such reports shall also be accepted. The potential for duplication of reported incidents shall not be a factor in determining whether or not a report is taken.
  4. Clery reporting does not replace or change any existing reporting requirements or procedures for disciplinary referrals for student or employee misconduct.
  5. Hate Crimes present a special reporting challenge. CLERY requires the CSA to document each reported crime occurrence, and CLERY also requires the CSA to record the category of prejudice.
