What is a CSA?
The Campus Security Department encourages all members of the campus community to report crimes on a timely basis. However, under the Clery Act, CSAs are required to report Clery Act qualifying crimes which occurred on campus, in public areas bordering campus and in certain non-campus buildings owned or controlled (leased) by RTC.
The law defines four categories of a Campus Security Authority:
- Campus Police Department or Campus Security
- Any individual who has responsibility for campus security, but does not constitute Police or Security.
- Any individual identified in the institutions policy which students and employees should report criminal offenses to.
- An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings.
If you have been identified as a CSA at RTC please utilize the RTC Online CSA Reporting Form to complete your report.
