The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose information on security policies and timely, annual information about crime on and around campus.

The CSU Police Department is responsible for releasing campus crime statistics to the University community. The Annual Fire and Safety Report informs the University community about important procedures, policies, crime prevention programs and crime statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus, on non-campus properties owned or controlled by Colorado State University, and on public property surrounding or immediately adjacent to campus.

A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is a university employee, student, and/or contractor that is federally mandated under the Clery Act with the responsibility to report crimes that are reported to them. The CSA role falls under one of the following four categories:

  1. You are a member of the CSU Police Department.
  2. You are not a member of the CSU Police Department but are responsible for campus security.
  3. You have been designated by CSU as someone to whom crimes should be reported. (e.g., Title IX Coordinator)
  4. You are someone with significant responsibility for student and campus activities. (e.g., a director who oversees housing; an athletic director; a faculty advisor to a student group or club)
