» Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act Compliance

Annual Security Report

The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose policy statements and crime statistics for incidents which occur on four defined areas: on-campus, in on-campus housing, on unobstructed public areas immediately adjacent to the campus and on non-campus properties owned and or controlled by the institution. This information is published in the Annual Security and Fire Report on or before October 1st. 

The Annual Security Report is prepared by the Department of Public Safety in cooperation with Residence Life, Student Life and the Judicial Affairs staff, along with information provided by Orange Police Department, Irvine Police Department and Anaheim Police Department. 

Campus Security Authority (CSA)

A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is an individual, who by virtue of their university responsibilities and under the Clery Act, is designated to receive and report criminal incidents to the Department of Public Safety so that they may be included and published in the university's Annual Security Report. 

CSAs include Public Safety, residential advisors, athletic coaches, student activity coordinators and faculty advisors. Occasionally, a person may want to seek assistance anonymously. For example, if you are a victim of sexual assault and wish to seek help, medical or otherwise, without contact with law enforcement, you can confidentially report the incident to a designated CSA. Your CSA can provide you with resources and serve as your agent to obtain the support you need without filing a police report. CSAs are not required to report your name or any contact information, but they are required to report the crime, location and date by completing the CSA reporting form.

If you are a CSA and need assistance reporting a Clery crime, please contact your Clery Compliance Officer, Dr. Rick Gonzalez at (714) 744-7685 or rigonzalez@chapman.edu
