Campus Security Authority (CSA)
Someone is Here to Listen
The intent of including non‐law enforcement personnel in the role of a CSA is to acknowledge that some campus community members, students in particular, may be hesitant about reporting a crime to the UNODPS, but may be more inclined to confide with other campus‐affiliated individuals.
CSAs can provide you with information regarding resources and help you understand your options regarding the reporting of a crime.
Action may not become part of the outcome when you contact a CSA. Therefore, if your issue is an emergency in nature please refer to our Crime Reporting page instead.
CSAs serve an important role on campus. They are here to assist students and staff. If someone reports a crime to you, you become a first responder. Victims have placed their trust in you should be provided with information regarding resources and understand their options regarding reporting a crime.
CSAs are responsible to assist people with their reporting options. The UNO Department of Public Safety is available to assist CSAs, staff, students, and visitors regarding any safety related matter.
CSAs Have a Responsibility to Report Statistical Data
CSAs have federally mandated responsibilities to report crimes that they witness or that they have been confided with. The outcome of their report becomes part of the aggregate statistical information in the university's Annual Campus Security & Fire Safety Report.
