Crime, Non-Crime, and Fire LogsThe University of Toledo Police Department (UTPD) assemble Crime / Fire Logs in an effort to provide the campus community with general information as it relates to incidents reported on and about The University of Toledo campuses. Because the UTPD takes reports of non-criminal incidents as well, this information is also included in the Daily Log Report:
Daily Case Log Report -- Provides a log of all incidents (both criminal and non-criminal) reported to the UTPD. This log includes incidents reported to the UTPD as outlined below in The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990. Additionally, this log contains actual fires that occur in on campus student housing facilities either accidental, intentional or by an unknown cause.
The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 was initiated by Howard and Connie Clery after their daughter Jeanne was murdered at Lehigh University in 1986. Amendments to this act in 1998 renamed it in memory of Jeanne Clery. The Clery Act, as it is now known, has numerous compliance requirements which apply to all public and private post secondary educational institutions participating in federal student aid programs. One of these requirements is the posting of a Crime Log. This log is to include criminal occurrences reported to the local police agency "or any official of the institution who is defined as a Campus Security Authority".
NOTE: The Clery Act allows an institution to withhold Crime Log information (i.e. the nature, date, time, location and/or disposition of a report) if any of the following conditions apply:
- The disclosure is prohibited by law.
- The disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim.
- The disclosure would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual.
- The disclosure would cause a suspect to flee or evade detection.
- The disclosure would result in destruction of evidence.
