About Crime and Fire Logs

 
The Public Safety Department maintains a Daily Crime and a Daily Fire Log of incidents reported to the Public Safety Department following Clery Act guidelines. The Daily Crime Log includes crimes that occur on campus, in areas patrolled by the University Police and Security and non - campus buildings or properties, on public property owned by a public entity (city or state government) that is immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. This is primarily streets and sidewalks, but could include parking lots and public spaces t hat immediately border the University’s geographic boundaries.

The Daily Crime and Fire Logs include the incident type, date incident is reported, date and general time of occurrence, and general location of each reported incident type, as well as the disposition of the incident, if this information is known. The Public Safety Department posts specific incidents in the Daily Crime and Fire Logs within two (2) business days of receiving a report of an incident and reserves the right to exclude reports or certain information about reports from a log, in certain circumstances, as permitted by law. The log is not intended to identify victims of incidents but, rather provide awareness to our community. The University’s newspaper, “The Whit” has published information on crime incidents and their locations derived from the Daily Crime Log, in order to provide awareness to our campus community.

NOTE: In sexual offenses that may have occurred in University Residential Housing, the “General Location” on the log may not specifically identify the involved building. In our effort to prote ct identification of the victim it may only identify the location as “On Campus Residential Housing.”

According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry, i.e. the nature, date, time, location and/or disposition if any of the following conditions apply:

  • The disclosure is prohibited by law.
  • If disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim.
  • If disclosure would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual
  • Cause a suspect to flee or evade detection; or
  • Result in the destruction of evidence.
