Please click on embedded hyperlink to the Campus Security Authority/Clery Act Crime Reporting Form for reporting these crimes to UPD within the timeframe identified above.
  • The report may be the basis for determining if there is a serious or continuing threat to the safety of the campus community that requires a timely warning or an immediate threat requiring an emergency notification.
  • After the CSA makes a report, the crime must be entered into the crime log within business days of when it was reported to the university police or security department.
  • CSAs should encourage individuals to report crimes to their university’s police department.

  • In an emergency, the reporting person should call 911 or the CSA may call on their behalf.
  • If the person needs assistance, the CSA should provide information for seeking help and let the person know that help is available even if the person does not want an investigation conducted.
  • If the reporting person does not want to contact the police, the CSA should report the crime to the university police.
  • To make sure the university police are aware of the crime reported to the CSA, the CSA should also submit a report to alert the university police of the crime even if the reporting party indicates that they will contact the police.
