Jeanne Clery Act

What is a Campus Safety Authority (CSA)?

A Campus Safety Authority (CSA) are university officials who have "significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline officials, advisors to student organizations, even ticket takers.

CSA's are usually found in departments responsible for, but not limited to, student and campus activities, safety/security, discipline, housing, athletics, human resources or judicial proceedings. This designation also includes any individual who has been specified by ULM to receive and report offenses.

CSA's are a vital part of data collection for the annual safety and security report. CSA's contribute to the ULM Police Department's philosophy of "See It, Hear It, Report It."

Professional mental health and religious counselors are exempt from mandatory reporting requirements.

CSA's are responsible for reporting the number of crimes and incidents as described in the Clery Act that occur in their department to the ULM Police Department. These numbers are included in the federally mandated Clery Report, which is posted annually in October.

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to create and make available an Annual Safety and Fire Report. In addition to input from law enforcement, certain staff positions are designated as (CSA's) for the purpose of providing information for this report.
