Campus Security Authority Information


A "Campus Security Authority" is defined by the Clery Act as "an official of an institution who has significant responsibility for campus security, student and campus activities, including student discipline, student extra-curricular activities, and advising student groups," or anyone so designated by the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs.

Campus Security Authorities are obligated by law to report crimes to the College Security Office because Hawaii Community College (HawCC) has a responsibility to notify the campus community about any crimes which pose an ongoing threat to the community. Even if you are not certain whether an ongoing threat exists, immediately contact the Security Office and let the Security Officer make the determination.

If you are a designated CSA in category 6 above and an alleged victim reports a crime to you, urge that individual to report to Campus Security. If the victim is willing, escort the victim to the Campus Security Office, or call Campus Security immediately. If the victim does not wish to report the crime to Campus Security, you are obligated to record the information given to you and submit a report to Campus Security. These actions are required by the Clery Act. (Click here for CSA Incident/Crime Report and Clery Crime Terminology Reference Sheet.)

Basic Information for Filling out CSA Incident/Crime Report
  • Encourage the person to report the crime to Security and/or Police, but do not force the individual to do so.
  • Just get the facts and obtain as accurate and complete as possible description of what happened. Specific questions will help Security Officers assign the crime to the correct category.
  • You don't have to prove what happened or who was at fault. You are reporting an alleged incident with little or no reason to doubt the valildity of the information.
    • Who? What? Where? When? How?
    • Ascertain whether the incident was a hate motivated crime.
  • You are not supposed to find the perpetrator.
  • Don't identify the victim, unless the victim wishes to be identified.
