The crime log is updated on a daily basis. It provides details about crimes that have been reported to the George Washington University Police Department. Crime logs are listed in chronological order with the most recent occurrences located at the bottom of the list for each month. Hard copies of the Crime Log are available in Rome Hall Suite 101 during normal business hours.
Entries that start with a case number of "NA" involve information received from university administrators that do not work for GWPD but who are defined by federal law as Campus Security Authorities. These administrators share non-identifying information, with the University Police that is provided by the victim. In these incidents, the victims did not file official police reports and it is therefore not always possible to provide information regarding the five areas typically covered in the crime log (i.e. Nature/Classification, Date Reported, Date Occurred, Time, General Location, Off Campus (Y or N), Disposition). Since an official report was not filed, no disposition is listed. These incidents are reported to GWPD for statistical purposes and are posted to the Crime Log when the information is received by GWPD.
For all other cases, the disposition of the case is listed. The disposition of the case provides information about the current status of a case or investigation. Visit our glossary for a complete definition of crime log dispositions.
According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry, i.e. the nature, date, time, location and/or disposition if any of the following conditions apply:
- The disclosure is prohibited by law
- If disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim.
- If disclosure would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual
- If disclosure would cause a suspect to flee or evade detection
- If disclosure would result in the destruction of evidence
