Campus Security Authority Training and Links
According to federal law, specifically The Clery Act, previously known as The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, the University Health Science Center Police Department is required to report “statistics concerning the occurrence of certain criminal offenses reported to the local police agency or any official of the institution who is defined as a Campus Security Authority."
The definition of Campus Security Authority, according federal law, is as follows: “An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings.”
This Federal Clery Act applies to certain crimes reported to the UT Police and other university officials known as Campus Security Authorities. Campus Security Authorities are federally mandated crime reporters. As such, these authorities shall report, on a timely and informative basis, any act-qualifying crimes that they are made aware of to the UT Police. The UT Police will use the submitted information to verify the appropriate classification of the crime.
