MWSU Police Department
Daily Crime Log
The daily crime log is not a general, catch-all incident log. Its purpose is for recording alleged criminal incidents that are reported to the campus police department. For example, if a student reports losing his or her wallet in the parking lot behind a dorm, it is not a criminal incident, and there is no requirement to record it in the log. However, if a student reports that his or her wallet was stolen from the student’s dorm room, this is a criminal incident and our institution is required to record it in the log. Specific traffic violations to include, should they be reported, are driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), hit-and-run (of a person), and vehicular manslaughter. Violations not considered to be “crimes” (i.e., citations for moving violations) are not required to be recorded.
