Some crimes and incidents, especially sexual offenses, are often not reported to police.
Some individuals are more hesitant to report crimes and incidents to the police or campus security than to university/college staff.
A federal law known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policies and Campus Crime Statistics Act, (often referred to as The Clery Act), requires institutions to collect and publish crime reports from certain college employees classified, based on position, as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs). (To learn more about The Clery Act, view our Annual Security Report and Campus Safety Guide.) You may report crime to a Campus Security Authority as well as to Campus Safety. Campus Security Authorities are trained in taking reports of crime.
In addition to Campus Safety Officers, Campus Security Authorities at Daytona State College include
- College administrators
- Managers in Student Services areas such as Admissions, Financial Aid, Registration, and Academic Advising.
- Coaches and directors in the Athletics Department
- Regional Campus Directors
- Faculty Club Advisors
- Adminstration and management of the Student Activities Department
- Personnel with responsibilities for the College's off-campus student housing
