Webinar - Campus Security Authorities (BC 1hr)
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, 20 USC 1092(f) (part of the Higher Education Act of 1965), is a federal law that requires universities disclose certain information about campus crime and security policies. Universities are required to publish an annual report every year by October 1st containing three years’ worth of campus crime statistics, as well as certain security policy statements, including, but not limited to, policies regarding sexual assault, the law enforcement authority of campus police, and where students should go to report crimes. You, and members of your office/department have been identified as Campus Security Authorities (CSA). If you meet one of the following criteria, you are likely a CSA: 1) duties include security responsibilities on campus; 2) duties include serving as someone people are required to report crime to; 3) campus official with significant responsibility for student and campus activities (ex: student housing, student groups, etc.). If you are made aware of a crime that has occurred on campus, on public property adjacent to campus, or on property owned or controlled by the university, you are obligated to report it to Kent State University Police Services. Reports should be made in a timely manner, and include as much information as possible about the nature and location of the crime. This webinar is ideal for all Kent State faculty and staff. This webinar counts for 1 hour toward your annual Beyond Compliance goal.
