Daily Crime Log
An informed campus is a safer campus.
This daily crime log is provided so our community members have the information they need to look out for themselves and others.
This daily crime log is meant to give you information about crimes which have been reported in the university area during the previous 60 days and was last updated according to the timestamp below. The daily crime log is not like a typical police blotter, and understanding how the information is compiled is important to developing an accurate picture of crime in the greater campus community. Please continue reading below for more information about the crime log and instructions on how to interpret it.
Understanding the crime log
The incidents detailed in this log are provided according to criteria set forth in the federal Clery Act. Not all of these crimes have been reported to the University of Illinois Police Department for the purpose of criminal investigation. Rather, many of these crimes have been reported to university employees known as “campus security authorities” who are obligated by federal law to bring such incidents to the attention of the university police department so the campus community may be notified of ongoing public safety issues. Many crime victims do not want police intervention, and may elect not to pursue a criminal investigation. University resources are always provided to crime victims whether or not they choose to pursue a criminal investigation, and academic disciplinary proceedings may still be initiated against offenders.
Additionally, many of these incidents have been reported to police in other jurisdictions and may be under investigation by those departments.
This electronic version of the daily crime log is provided as a convenience and is updated as frequently as possible. A current version for public viewing is always kept in hard copy at the front desk of the University of Illinois Police Department, located in the Public Safety Building at 1110 W. Springfield Ave., Urbana. If you’re having trouble reading the crime log, please refer to these instructions for reading the crime log.
The fire log is maintained by Campus Code Compliance and Fire Safety at the Physical Plant Services Building, 1501 S. Oak St., Champaign.
