The University of Arizona complies with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose campus security information. Disclosures about crime statistics and summaries of security policies are made each year in an Annual Security and Fire Report (ASR), and information about specific crimes and emergencies is made publicly available on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
The spirit of the Clery Act is direct: knowledge is power. Schools should inform students, employees, parents and potential students of crimes that occur on or around the campus.
Who is a Campus Security Authority (CSA)?
In alignment with the Clery Act, the University identifies CSAs based on position descriptions and employment functions. A CSA is most simply an employee with significant responsibility for student and campus activities. CSAs include members of UAPD and public safety, certain University officials, and other designated employees and affiliates.
Being a victim of a crime can be traumatic. You may feel isolated and confused, and not know where to turn for practical advice & support.
Your duty as a Campus Security Authority is to complete the CSA crime reporting form within 24 hours of receiving information.
Annual Security & Fire Reports
The Annual Security & Fire Safety Reports are prepared by the University Compliance Office. The purpose of the reports are to fully inform the public concerning important safety information and to meet the standards outlined in the Clery Act.
An advocate is a trained professional whose goal is to support and center the needs of the student/survivor. The purpose of meeting with an advocate is so that a student survivor of sexual or gender-based violence understand their rights and their options. It is up to the student to decide how they would like to proceed.
The University of Arizona Police Department
The University of Arizona encourages victims, witnesses, and others to accurately and promptly report all crimes to UAPD or other local police agencies. Crimes can be reported to UAPD 24 hours a day by calling 9-1-1, or (520) 621-UAPD (8273) for non-emergencies, or coming to the UAPD station at 1852 E First St.
