Daily Crime Log

The Daily Crime Log

The Amarillo College Police Department maintains and makes available for review a daily crime log. The log is maintained in a hard copy form at the police department.  The purpose of the log is to record criminal Incidents and alleged criminal incidents reported to campus police. Crime log entries include all crimes reported for the required geographic locations, not just the Clery Act. The crime log discloses specific information about criminal incidents, not crime statistics. The log is designed to disclose information on a timelier basis than the annual statistical disclosures. A crime is entered into the log as soon as it is reported to the department. This includes crimes that are reported directly to campus police or to local law enforcement agencies who subsequently reports them to the campus police.

The crime log, for the most recent 60 day period, is open to public inspection, upon request, during normal business hours. Crime logs older than 60 days are available for inspection within two business days of a request. An entry or a change in the disposition of a complaint will be recorded within two business days when known.  A business day is Monday through Friday, except for the days when the college is closed. The only exceptions are:

  1. If the disclosure is prohibited by law; or
  2. If the disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim.

The campus police department may temporally withhold information if there is clear and convincing evidence that the release of information would:

  1. Jeopardize and ongoing investigation; or
  2. Jeopardize the safety of an individual; or
  3. Cause a suspect to flee or evade detection; or
  4. Result in destruction of evidence.
