Campus Security Authority Incident Report Form
(Formerly Known as the Anonymous Reporting Form)
This form is intended for anonymous reporting of a sexual assault in situations where the victim/survivor is not ready to file a crime report. It will be used for statistical purposes, enabling USC to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. This law requires all higher-education institutions to collect crime reports from what Clery considers to be "Campus Security Authorities."
When a Campus Security Authority receives information about a sexual assault or other crime that falls under the purview of the Clery Act, he or she should document by completing and submitting the Campus Security Authority Incident Report Form.
As the university's Sexual Assault Resource Center, the Center for Women & Men supports a survivor’s right to choose whether to file a criminal report, which is different than a Campus Security Authority Incident Report. A criminal report is an official report made with the intent to prosecute. The Campus Security Authority Incident Report Form is used to compile statistical crime information that is made public annually. A Campus Security Authority should not try and convince a survivor to file a criminal report if the survivor chooses not to do so. However, the Campus Security Authority must complete the incident report form.
Please note: Effective Oct. 1, 2013, the staff of the Center for Women & Men no longer will be designated as Campus Security Authorities. Therefore, referring a victim to the Center for Women & Men does not satisfy the requirement of submitting an incident report form. In addition to referring the victim (if known) to the Center for Women & Men, the CSA also must submit the Incident Report Form to DPS, attention Dan Wallace, records manager.
Please fill out the form to the best of your knowledge, and leave blank any sections for which you do not know the answer. Submit this information within 24 hours of being contacted by a victim. To reach the form, click here. Thank you.
