Reporting Responsibilities


Campus Security Authority Reporting Responsibilities

A Campus Security Authority (CSA), is any university employee who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities or any person so designated by UCCS to carry this role.

As a CSA, you are responsible for contacting Public Safety at (719) 255-3111 if you observe any crime listed below, or if any person reveals to you that he or she has learned of, was the victim of, was the perpetrator of, or was witness to any crime listed below. This applies to crimes committed on any of UCCS property or, on property adjacent to the campus or at UCCS sponsored activities away from campus.

Crimes that must be reported are:

  • Criminal Homicide (Murder, Non-negligent Manslaughter and Manslaughter by Negligence)
  • Sexual Assault (Rape, Fondling, Incest and Statutory Rape)
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Burglary
  • Motor Vehicle Theft
  • Arson
  • Hate crimes (race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, national origin and disability)
  • Domestic Violence
  • Dating Violence
  • Stalking
  • Persons Arrested/Cited/Summoned for
    • Liquor Law Violations
    • Drug Law Violations

    • Liquor Law Violations

In addition, if a serious crime that may cause an ongoing threat to the UCCS community is reported, you should report it to UCCS Police immediately at (719) 255-3111. If there is any question about whether an ongoing threat exists, immediately contact UCCS Police to discuss the matter further.  We all have a duty to protect our community.

If you are in doubt as to whether a crime is reportable, please report it!

The reporting requirements for the Clery Act are detailed and complex and all decisions about whether an incident must be included in the UCCS Annual Safety and Security Report should be made by the UCCS Police.

If you have any questions about your reporting obligations or are unsure about whom else you should share this information, please do not hesitate to contact UCCS Police at (719) 255-3111.
