CSA-Clery Act Incident Report (CAIR)
If this is an emergency, call 911.
One of the purposes of The Clery Act is to encourage accurate and timely reporting of campus crime statistics. An important goal of the Clery Act is to provide information to the campus community to promote crime awareness and to enhance campus safety through prompt disclosures and reliable statistics for campus area crimes. This form provides campus security authorities (CSAs) (other than University Police) with a uniform method to document reported crimes that have occurred on or around Texas State University. The Clery Act defines CSAs as someone who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities. If you are a CSA, the University should have notified you and provided you with training. If you think you are a CSA and you have not been identified, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not use this information to identify the victim, but rather to meet Clery Act requirements and increase public safety.
Texas State University encourages reporting crime to the police. We understand and support victims who wish to report crime to CSAs other than University Police. As a CSA, you may be the only University official to whom a victim reports the crime. Your attempt to gather information in this form in a supportive and empathetic way is critical to maximizing campus safety.
For Clery Act purposes, Texas State University affiliation of the involved parties is not a relevant fact as to whether this report form is to be completed. You must complete this form regardless. If you get a crime report you think may be for a Clery Act crime or you think may have happened in Clery Act geography, you must fully document it.
Directing or referring the reporting party to the University Police does not satisfy the Clery Act. In order for the University to satisfy its critical Clery Act requirements, all CSA's must complete this form as soon as they learn of crimes. In addition, CSAs must respond to an annual request by the Clery Act Compliance Specialist to gather crime data.
