Crime and Fire Log

The University of Pittsburgh Police publishes a crime and fire log every business day. This log contains a summary of all reports generated during the previous 24-hour period or weekend.

In addition, a media book containing a log of incidents reported in the most recent 60 days is available for review at our police station. Log entry information dated prior to the last 60 days and up to 7 years can be made available upon request. Note that all log information is documented and titled according to information received at the time of the incident.


Campus Security Authority

The Clery Act requires the University of Pittsburgh to collect crime reports from a variety of individuals and organizations that Clery considers to be Campus Security Authorities.  These include security and law enforcement officers; deans; coaches; residence hall staff; overseers and advisors to student clubs and organizations; and other campus officials who have "significant responsibility for student and campus activities," such as, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings.
