Campus Security Authority Training & Report Form
Campus Security Authority Training
Each year Siena College publishes an Annual Security and Fire Report, as required by the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 (the “Clery Act”). Siena is required to compile and publish statistics regarding the occurrence of certain criminal offenses that are reported either to the local police agency or to any official of the college who is considered to be a Campus Security Authority under the Clery Act.Campus Security Authorities are defined by function, not title. If someone has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, he or she is a campus security authority. You are taking this training because you have been identified as a Campus Security Authority by Siena.
As a Campus Security Authority, you are required to report Clery Act qualifying criminal incidents to the Department of Public Safety. At the conclusion of this training you will be able to identify what crimes these are and the proper procedure for reporting. If you observe any of these crimes, or if any person reveals to you that he/she learned of or was the victim of, perpetrator of, or witness to any of these crimes you are expected to immediately contact the Department of Public Safety to have a crime report taken or fill out a Campus Security Authority Crime & Incident Report Form and forward it to the Department of Public Safety. Although this training session is to address your responsibilities as a Campus Security Authority under the Clery Act, Siena College expects all employees to report any crime or incident to the Department of Public Safety or Student Affairs. Please do not investigate the crime or attempt to determine whether a crime, in fact, took place. Simply make the report. Appropriate personnel may later contact you or others to gather additional information. If there is any doubt as to whether a crime is reportable, you should err on the side of reporting the matter.
To ensure that you are aware of your responsibilities, Siena College provides training on Clery Act compliance for our Campus Security Authorities.
