In accordance with the Clery Act, Xavier University Police maintains a Daily Crime and Fire log. This log is updated at least every two business days. Click on the link below to access the crime log.
Crime Log Instructions
This information is provided to assist you in understanding the crime log entries
Crime log case numbers do not run sequentially. The Xavier University Police Department assigns a case number for all reportable activities, both criminal and non-criminal. Only case numbers generated for criminal activity are listed in the crime log.
Crimes are in chronological order. The most recent crimes are at the top of the list.
The crime log incidents will not match the crime statistics, as the crime log is compiled using the Ohio Revised Crimes Code and the crime statistics are required by law to be compiled using the Federal Uniformed Crime Reporting crime definitions.
Hard copies of the Crime Logs are also available, for review, at Flynn Hall during normal business hours.
**Note: Incidents with a case number that start with “MAX” involve information received from other University Administrators, who are defined by federal law as “campus security authorities”. These administrators share non-identifying information, with the University Police, that is provided by the victim or complainant. In these incidents, the victim did not file an official police report and therefore, it is may not possible to provide information regarding the five areas typically covered in the Crime Log, i.e. (Nature/Classification, Date Reported, Date Occurred, Time, General Location, Off Campus (Y or N), Disposition. These incidents are reported to the University Police for statistical purposes and are posted to the Crime Log as the information is received by the University Police.
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:
1. The disclosure is prohibited by law
2. If disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim.
3. If disclosure would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual
4. If disclosure would cause a suspect to flee or evade detection
5. If disclosure would result in the destruction of evidence
