Report Concerns

Campus Security Authority

The Campus Community is encouraged to report criminal incidents directly to University Police.  However, some victims of crimes may be more inclined to report a crime to someone other than the University Police.  A CSA might be the first person to whom a student, faculty or staff member reports a crime.  It is during this first reporting that the Federal Statute requires CU Anschutz to act.

Under the Clery Act, a crime is “reported” when it is brought to the attention of a CSA.  If a CSA receives information about a crime and believes that it was provided in good faith, he or she should document it as a crime and promptly report it to University Police for the purpose of making timely warning notifications and for inclusion in the annual statistical disclosure.  Crimes should be reported directly to University Police by phone: 303.724.4444.

Confidential Reporting

The University offers several ways to report crimes while preserving privacy. Crimes reported confidentially will be included in the annual disclosure of crime statistics, however, no personally identifying information will be included. Victims who do not wish to pursue campus disciplinary or criminal action, but who wish to document the details of an incident with the University, may file a report with the University Police Department anonymously at:
