15. Crime Log

The crime log is updated on a daily basis. It provides details about crimes that have been reported to the Department of Public Safety. Crime logs are listed in chronological order with the most recent occurrences located at the top of the list for each month. Hard copies of the crime log are available at the Facilities building (room 200) during normal business hours. Electronic copies can be requested by emailing police@loyola.edu and will be received within 48 hours.

Five areas are disclosed in the crime log: Classification, Case Number, Date/Time Occurred, Date/Time Reported, General Location, and Disposition. According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry, i.e. the classification, 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

Fire Log

In accordance with the Higher Education Act and the Student Fire Safety Act, Loyola’s campus fire safety log is available for viewing on our Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) website at http://www.loyola.edu/department/environmental-health-safety/fire-safety/annual-fire-log or upon request.  To receive a hardcopy, requests should be made in person or by contacting our EHS office at ehs@loyola.edu or by calling (410) 617-2972.  In person requests can be made Monday through Friday from 7:30 am - 4:00 pm (excluding Holidays or when the University is closed).

Anytime there is an incident of fire on campus, the information is recorded in the fire log.  The logs are organized chronologically by year.  Within each log, the incidents are organized chronologically by date, and the most recent occurrence is located at the bottom of the list.  Six items are typically disclosed in the fire log (Nature of Fire, Date/Time Occurred, Date reported, General Location, Incident Number and Property Value).
