According to the Higher Education Act, or 20 U.S.C. 1902, now known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, High Point University, is required to collect and annually publish statistics concerning the occurrence of selected crimes on campus property (including residential facilities), non-campus property, and public property, recorded or known to High Point University Security, local law enforcement agencies or any individuals identified by the University as “Campus Security Authorities” (CSA). Campus Security Authorities are defined as, “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 procedures.” The information collected from these forms is used to prepare a compilation of statistical crime information for inclusion in the campus’ Annual Security Report. High Point University Security will use this form to determine the category of the crime or incident and the location under which the incident should be reported according to the requirements of the Clery Act. Data collected on this form is to be used to promote crime awareness and enhance campus safety.
It is the policy of High Point University to ensure that victims and witnesses to crime are aware of their right to report criminal acts to HPU Security or to the police, and to report University policy violations to the appropriate office. However, if a reporting person requests anonymity, this request must be honored to the extent permitted by law. Accordingly, no information should be included on this form that would personally identify the victim without his/her consent.
As a CSA for High Point University please follow the guidelines set forth by your department for reporting one of the Clery Act specified crimes. A person reporting a specified crimes/incident to a CSA shall also be encouraged to report the crime to High Point University Security and local law enforcement agencies.
CSAs must also follow High Point University Policy by completing the Crime & Incident Reporting Form at the end of the year advising if a specified crime was reported to them but forgot to report it.
Encourage the crime victim(s) and/or witness to report the incident to HPU Security or local law enforcement.
