Campus Security Authority (CSA)
Below you will find general information about Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) including a list of positions designated as CSAs and the responsibilities of individuals seated in CSA designated positions. For more information, please review the Campus Safety and Security Reporting policy.
A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is an individual employed in a position determined to have significant responsibility for student and campus activities and/or responsibility for campus security. Many crimes (especially sexual assaults) go unreported to police but may be reported to others. Because of a CSA's involvement with student and campus activities, a student may be more comfortable sharing information regarding a crime with them than with a member of law enforcement - thus the designation of the position as a Campus Security Authority.
Reporting: A CSA is required to report all potential criminal incidents that come to their attention to the University Police Department (UNFPD). A CSA should advise a victim/witness of the CSA's responsibility to report crimes and if the victim/witness requests confidentiality, a CSA may withhold the victim/witness's personally identifiable information. In all cases, however, a CSA must report potential criminal incidents to UNFPD, regardless of whether the CSA is asked to withhold personally identifiable information.
A CSA’s responsibilities DO NOT include investigating criminal incidents or determining whether an incident is actually a crime.
*A person who is licensed or certified as a professional counselor and whose official responsibilities include providing mental health counseling to members of the institution’s community and who is functioning within the scope of their license or certification is exempt from the campus security authority reporting requirements.
Training: All positions designated as CSAs are required to complete an online or in-person training session. For more information concerning the training sessions or CSAs, please contact the University Police Department at (904) 620-2800 or the Office of the General Counsel at (904) 620-2828.
