What do Campus Security Authorities Do?

  • They listen to the person who has brought forward a crime concern to them
  • They find out the following from the person who brought forward the crime concern to them:
    • Location Of Crime
    • Type of Crime
    • When Crime Occurred
    • When Crime was Reported

*It is very helpful to have the reporting person’s name, but not a requirement of Clery to get that information

  • To give resources to the student to address what has occurred, such as the following:
    • Advocacy Centers, in case they need to speak to an advocate at UNM
    • Student Health and Counseling
    • UNM Police
    • Dean of Students Office
    • Office of Equal Opportunity
    • To report the incident, utilizing the CSA Reporting Form or the Incident/Police Report Reporting methods that have already been approved as reporting avenues.

What Don’t Campus Security Authorities Do?

  • Try to apprehend the subject who committed the crime
  • Decide if a crime actual occurred
  • You don’t tell the student you can keep the incident confidential

How do you sign up to be a Campus Security Authority?

Those individuals who are identified as CSA’s need to go to the following website and register to be a CSA: https://police.unm.edu/  by clicking on the CSA Member Registration link on the left hand side of the page.  Once you have registered to be a CSA, the Clery Act Compliance Officer will review your registration and approve you, if your role requires you to be a CSA.  Once approved, you will then need to take the CSA Training (see below).

How do you take the on-line CSA Training?

Once you have registered, you will need to log into the CSA Member Login on the UNM Campus Police website to access the CSA Training: https://police.unm.edu/  which is at the top right of this UNMPD opening page

Once you have logged in to the CSA Member Login, you will click on the Download Training PDF, which is on the left hand side of the page.  To complete the training, you will need to scroll through all the slides within the power point presentation provided.  Once you have completed the training and answered a few simple questions about the training, you may opt to provide feedback at the Training Feedback tab.  

*CSA Training must be completed during the first year an individual serves as a CSA; however, some CSA’s may be requested to complete the training on an annual basis.

How to update your CSA Profile?

To update your CSA Profile, you will need to log into the CSA Member Login on the UNM Campus Police website https://police.unm.edu/ that is on the top right of the page. 

Once you have logged in to the CSA Member Login, you will click on the Update Your CSA Profile link, which is on the left hand side of the page.  

There is an option, if you have forgotten your password, so that you may remedy a forgotten password.  This does not change your password for your UNMNETID, as that is separate than your CSA login. 

Once you have logged in to the CSA Member Login, you will click on the Update Your CSA Profile link, which is on the left hand side of the page.   You will complete the information, click on I agree to the terms, and then you will need to submit your profile update. 

If you are unable to log-in, this means you have not done the training or your access has been removed because of failing to update your profile in the past.  This means you will have to resign up to be a CSA, which you can do by following the information under “How do you sign up to be a Campus Security Authority (CSA) – (See above)?

 *Profiles must be updated on an annual basis.
