Daily Crime Log

 

Under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act), the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is required to maintain and make available a daily crime log. The purpose of the daily crime log is to record all criminal incidents and alleged criminal incidents that are reported to campus law enforcement and Campus Security Authorities (CSAs). Therefore, not all incidents listed on the crime log are included in annual Clery statistics, police statistics, or are investigated by law enforcement. The Daily Crime Log includes crimes reported to the CUPD during the last 60 days.

More About the Daily Crime Log


Under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act), the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is required to maintain and make available a daily crime log.  The purpose of the daily crime log is to record all criminal incidents and alleged criminal incidents that are reported to campus law enforcement and Campus Security Authorities (CSAs).

Therefore, not all incidents listed on the crime log are included in annual Clery statistics, police statistics, or are investigated by law enforcement.  Some traffic violations are criminal in nature and, if reported, must be recorded on the log. They are driving under the influence (DUI), hit-and-run (of a person) and vehicular manslaughter. However, regular traffic violations that aren’t considered “crimes” (i.e., citations for moving violations) are not required to be included on the daily log.

Incidents are posted on the crime log within two business days of the information being reported to campus law enforcement or to a Campus Security Authority. A business day is Monday through Friday, except for days when the institution is closed (such as holidays or other scheduled breaks). The crime log for the most recent 60-day period must be open to public inspection, free of charge, upon request, during normal business hours.  Any portion of the log that is older than 60 days is available by contacting the Clery Compliance Manager and will be made available within two business days of a request for public inspection. 

Crimes included on the crime log are those that occurred on campus, in or on non-campus buildings or property, public property within the campus or immediately adjacent and accessible from the campus, and reports of crimes that occurred within CUPD’s patrol jurisdiction.  The crime log will include the date the crime was reported, the date and time (or range) when the crime occurred, the nature of the crime and the disposition. Our institution is not required to update the disposition of a crime log entry if the disposition changes after 60 days have passed. A CSA report is not a report to the police department. CSA reports are submitted to the Clery Compliance Manager who typically has limited information on these incidents. 

CSA reports are to document Clery crime(s) occurring on Clery geography that were reported to a CSA in order to track crime statistics and provide safety information to the community. Since these reports are not official reports to the police, campus law enforcement is unable to conduct an investigation unless extenuating circumstances exist. Information may be temporarily withheld if there is clear and convincing evidence that the release of information would jeopardize an ongoing investigation, jeopardize the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence.
