Training and Reporting
We have released the new D. Stafford & Associates (DSA) Campus Security Authority (CSA) Online Training Program. We look forward to continuing to help each person identified as a CSA meet their annual training needs to assist the institution in complying with the Clery Act.
We updated the courses with new material and requirements, as the Violence Against Women Act brought about direct changes to the Clery Act. DSA strives to continue to provide you with a quality training and information regarding these complex Federal regulations.

Shasta College is required to disclose the following Clery Act crimes and Campus Security Authorities must report these crimes when they are reported to them in their capacity as a CSA.
- Murder/Non-Negligent Manslaughter: the willful (non-negligent) killing of one human being by another. NOTE: Deaths caused by negligence, attempts to kill, assaults to kill, suicides, accidental deaths, and justifiable homicides are excluded.
- Manslaughter by Negligence: the killing of another person through gross negligence.
- Robbery: the taking or attempting to take anything from value of the care, custody or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear.
- Aggravated Assault: an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. This type of assault usually is accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to produce death or great bodily harm. It is not necessary that injury result from an aggravated assault when a gun, knife or other weapon is used which could or probably would result in a serious potential injury if the crime were successfully completed.
- Burglary: The unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felony or a theft. For reporting purposes this definition includes: unlawful entry with intent to commit a larceny or a felony; breaking and entering with intent to commit a larceny; housebreaking; safecracking; and all attempts to commit any of the aforementioned.
- Motor Vehicle Theft: The theft or attempted theft of a motor vehicle. (Classify as motor vehicle theft all cases where automobiles are taken by persons not having lawful access, even though the vehicles are later abandoned - including joy riding)
- Arson: The willful or malicious burning or attempt to burn, with or without intent to defraud, a dwelling house, public building, motor vehicle or aircraft, or personal property of another kind.
- Domestic Violence: The term ‘‘domestic violence’’ includes felony or misdemeanor crimes of violence committed by a current or former spouse of the victim, by a person with whom the victim shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse, by a person similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction receiving grant monies, or by any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person’s acts under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction.
California's domestic violence laws seek to prevent violence in familial or intimate relationships. The state identifies domestic violence when an individual commits a criminal act within one of the types of relationships specified by the California Penal Code: spouse or former spouse; cohabitant or former cohabitant in a home; a parent with whom the individual has a child; or a partner in a dating relationship. Domestic violence often occurs in tandem with child abuse.
When a prosecutor charges a defendant with a crime based on domestic violence, several sections of the Penal Code may apply. A prosecutor can choose which criminal charges to pursue based on the severity of the conduct and harm to the victim, along with other circumstances of the case.
In Section 242, the Penal Code defines battery as a "willful and unlawful use of force or violence against the person of another." Section 243(e) (1) of the Penal Code criminalizes battery within one of the specified familial or intimate relationships. Alternatively, a prosecutor can choose to charge the defendant with battery under Section 243(d) if the defendant "inflicted serious bodily injury" on the victim. Battery under Section 243(d) reflects a greater degree of harm suffered by the victim of domestic violence.
The Penal Code also criminalizes domestic violence under Section 273.5 when an individual's willful conduct leads to a "corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition" suffered by a person with whom the individual has one of the familial or intimate relationships specified by the domestic violence laws of California.
California state laws allow victims of domestic violence to apply for emergency protective orders and restraining orders in both civil and criminal court. Issuance of a protective order or restraining order does not necessarily depend on physical harm suffered by the victim -- someone who fears imminent harm or who has suffered emotional abuse may still qualify for protection through the California legal system. See more at:
- Dating Violence: The term ‘‘dating violence’’ means violence committed by a person—
(A) who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim; and (B) where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on a consideration of the following factors:(i) The length of the relationship; (ii) The type of relationship; (iii) The frequency of interaction between the persons involved in the relationship.
- Stalking: The term ‘‘stalking’’ means engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to— (A) fear for his or her safety or the safety of others; or (B) suffer substantial emotional distress.

Shasta College is also required to report statistics for hate (bias) related crimes by the type of bias as defined below for the following classifications: murder/non-negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter, sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson (see definitions above) and larceny, vandalism, intimidation, and simple assault (see definitions below).
- Larceny: The unlawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding away of property from the possession or constructive possession of another.
- Vandalism: To willfully or maliciously destroy, injure, disfigure, or deface any public or private property, real or personal, without the consent of the owner or person having custody or control by cutting, tearing, breaking, marking, painting, drawing, covering with filth, or any other such means as may be specified by local law.
- Intimidation: To unlawfully place another person in reasonable fear of bodily harm through the use of threatening words and/or other conduct, but without displaying a weapon or subjecting the victim to actual physical attack.
- Simple Assault: An unlawful physical attack by one person upon another where neither the offender displays a weapon, nor the victim suffers obvious severe or aggravated bodily injury involving apparent broken bones, loss of teeth, possible internal injury, severe laceration or loss of consciousness.
If a hate crime occurs where there is an incident involving intimidation, vandalism, larceny, simple assault or other bodily injury, the law requires that the statistic be reported as a hate crime even though there is no requirement to report the crime classification in any other are of the Clery Act.
A hate or bias related crime is not a separate, distinct crime, but is the commission of a criminal offense which was motivated by the offender's bias. For example, a subject assaults a victim, which is a crime. If the facts of the case indicate that the offender was motivated to commit the offense because of his bias against the victim's race, sexual orientation, etc., the assault is then also classified as a hate/bias crime.
- Bias: A reformed negative opinion or attitude toward a group of persons based on their actual or perceived race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, national origin, or disability.
