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.)
