Campus Security Authority
One purpose of Clery is to encourage reporting and the accurate collection of campus crime statistics to promote crime awareness and to enhance campus safety through reliable statistical records.The purpose of this report form is to provide a uniform procedure for documenting the what, when and where of certain reportable crimes and/or non-criminal hate incidents having been reported to a campus security authority (CSA) other than the Campus Safety Department.
No victim personal identifying information shall be included on this form. The intention of this form is to increase public safety.
It is the policy of NEO A&M College to encourage victims and/or witnesses to crime(s) to report such crime(s) to the department of public safety and/or to a designated Campus Security Authority(CSA). (A list of CSAs is available on the NEO DPS website) For the purpose of Clery the CSAs are required to document certain reportable crimes and non-criminal hate incidents which have been reported to them and which have occurred in:
- On-campus property: Any building or property owned or controlled by the college within the same reasonable contiguous geographic area and used by the College, used in direct support of, or in a manner related to the College’s educational purpose, including buildings or property the location described herein that is owned by the College but controlled by another person and which is frequently used by students (excluding residential life buildings)
- On-campus residential life buildings: residential life buildings, including those of officially recognized organizations in which the students live, within one mile of campus.
- Non-campus property: non-campus property or building owned or controlled by the College that is frequently used by students and is not within the same reasonable contiguous geographic area (one mile) of the College, or any building/property that is owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the College.
- Public property: public property located immediately adjacent to and accessible from campus, including thoroughfares, sidewalks, streets, lands, and parks.
For Clery purposes, whether an offender or victim is a student is not relevant. Clery documentation is not satisfied by simply directing/referring the reporting part to the NEO Department of Public Safety.
To satisfy reporting requirements for the Clery Act, all CSAs are required to complete this form when any of the specified offenses listed below are reported to them. Nonetheless, a person reporting a crime shall also be encouraged to report the crime to the NEO Department of Public Safety.
