Crime mapping is an interactive tool that allows our community to access incidents and crime data via the internet. This further enhances and promotes transparency and accountability while building trust and engagement with our campus community. We hope by increasing community awareness of crime trends this will lead to a collaborative effort with law enforcement to reduce crime.

AB 485-Hate Crimes
Office of the Attorney General requires all law enforcement agencies in California to submit hate crime event reports to the Department of Justice and requires the Department of Justice to make an annual public report with the information obtained from local law enforcement. AB 485 adds an additional provision to this law, requiring each local law enforcement agency to post the information it is required to report to the DOJ to the agency’s own website on a monthly basis.
Clery Crime Log
In compliance with the Clery Act and CSU Executive Order 1107, the University Police Department maintains a Crime Log. The purpose of the Crime Log is to record all criminal incidents and alleged criminal incidents that are reported to the campus police. The Crime Log includes specific information about criminal incidents, not crime statistics, and is not an all-inclusive police activity report. The Crime Log includes the following five informational items:
Information that may likely jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence, will be temporarily withheld from this report until the above referenced is no longer likely to occur from the release of this information. Crimes for which the disclosure is prohibited by law or the disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim are not included. The Crime Log is open to public inspection, free of charge, upon request, during normal business hours at the University Police Department.
