Crime Log Information
The Clery Act requires a campus police department to create, maintain, and make available a Daily Crime Log. Crime Log incidents are those crimes reported to the Mines Police Department. They will not match statistics in the Campus Security and Fire Safety Report or annual crime statistics with the Colorado Bureau of Investigations. The purpose of the Daily Crime Log is for recording criminal and alleged criminal incidents, not criminal events that are confirmed through investigation. Additionally, a crime that is ‘unfounded’ or ‘referred to an outside agency’ may be included in the Daily Crime Log but is not included for statistical purposes.
The Mines Police list crimes in chronological order by time of the report. The Crime log will list the nature of the crime; the date of the crime reported; date & time the crime occurred; a general location; and a disposition of the crime if known. All personally identifiable information is absent from the report and the campus is not alerted when the “Daily Crime Log” is updated — it is only available at the Mines Police Department, located at 1922 Jones Road. The most recent 60-day period is open to the public, free of charge, during normal business hours. Any portion older than 60-days may not be available immediately. It is not available electronically.
Universities with on-campus student housing are required to create, maintain, and make available a Fire Log. This log records all reported fires, including arson, in on-campus student housing facilities. The Fire Log is managed by the Mines Police Department.
Campus Security Authorities
Campus Security Authority (CSA) is a Clery term that encompasses groups of individuals and organizations associated with an institution. Campus Security Authorities are defined as any individual who has significant contact with students or responsibility for student and campus activities including but not limited to housing, disciplinary action, or judicial proceedings. Any faculty or staff member who is an advisor to any student organization is automatically a Campus Security Authority. Any faculty or staff member who has a participatory role in the disciplinary process of a student is automatically a Campus Security Authority.
The purpose of a CSA is that the Department of Education recognizes that not everyone wants to report crimes to campus or local law enforcement. They tend to feel more comfortable confiding in their Club Advisor, Coach, Counselor or their Dean, or the Human Resource Services Office, among others.
Individuals who meet the criteria for being a CSA:
- Dean of Students
- Student housing or student extracurricular activities staff
- Director of Athletics and team coaches
- Employees/Staff who monitor access, e.g., Recreation Center staff
- Faculty advisor to a student group
- Coordinator of Greek Life
- Public Safety/Police Department
If you are designated as a CSA, or want more information on a CSA, please review Mines Campus Security Authority.
