As part of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)), otherwise known as the Clery Act, qualifying incidents reported to Public Safety, from various sources, including Campus Security Authorities (CSA), are required to be published in an Annual Security Report and made available to the campus community. One purpose of the Clery Act is to encourage the reporting and collection of accurate campus crime statistics to promote crime awareness and enhance campus safety. The information collected from these forms will be used to compile statistics to be included in the Annual Security and Fire Report that Siena College publishes and distributes each fall.
CSA's are obligated under statute to report Clery Act qualifying crimes and furthermore, are expected by the College to report all crimes/incidents reported to them to Public Safety as soon as they become aware. For additional information on the Clery Act and CSA responsibilities, visit the Campus Security Authority training web page or contact the Clery Act Coordinator at 518-783-2376.
INCIDENT REPORT FORM
The CSA is to document as much of the requested information on the form as s/he knows, excluding identity and any personally identifiable information about the parties if confidentiality is requested. It is the policy of Siena College to ensure that the victims and witnesses to crime are aware of their right to report criminal acts to the police and be assisted by the College in doing so if they wish and/or to report policy violations to the appropriate office (e.g. Student Affairs, Public Safety, Residence Life, Title IX Coordinator, etc.). However, if a reporting person requests anonymity, this request must be honored to the extent permitted by law.
Based on information received, Public Safety will determine the category of the crime or incident and the location under which the incident should be reported in the Annual Security and Fire Report.
