This reporting mechanism is not meant to report crimes in progress. If there is a crime in progress, immediately call LSC Police Dispatch at 281-290-5911 (X5911 from a campus phone).
This form is for Campus Security Authorities (CSA) to report crimes to the LSC Clery Compliance Officer (as required by law) that the complainant has disclosed to the CSA, but does not wish to have police involvement.
Before submitting this form, the CSA should offer LSC Police services to the complainant. If they refuse, this form should be filled out and sent immediately upon receiving the report.
Definition of Campus Security Authority
A Campus Security Authority (CSA) is a Clery-specific term that encompasses groups of individuals associated with an institution whose functions involve relationships with students and campus activities. CSAs can include public safety officers, law enforcement officers, academic and advising counselors, student activities personnel, athletic coaches, Vice Presidents of Student Success, Vice Presidents of Instructions, Deans (or other senior administrative personnel who deal regularly with students), student orientation staff, overseers and advisors to student clubs and organizations, study abroad faculty and staff, human resource managers, and staff involved in student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. If you are not sure if you are a CSA, then act as if you are and submit and follow the instructions on this site.
CSAs who receive a report of one of the below Clery crimes must immediately submit this form to the LSC Clery Compliance Officer, UNLESS the crime has already been reported to the LSC Police and a police officer arrived and took a police report.
It is important that CSAs must report all Clery crimes immediately to the Clery Compliance Officer. CSAs have an important role in LSC’s compliance with the law. CSA crime reports are used by LSC to:
- fulfill its responsibility to annually disclose Clery crime statistics, and
