Reports and Statistics
We use quantitative data to gauge the performance and impact of our job in the on-campus community. The data that we collect makes it into various security reports that are available to the public on this page.
Daily Crime & Fire Log
This log provides information on incidents handled by the UPD; it includes dates and times of incidents (occurring and reported), the incident nature, the general location, the disposition, and estimated loss amounts. The log does not include names or specific locations, such as residence hall room numbers. Use the button below to visit the log.
You can also view the year to date Clery-based campus security and fire statistics using the link below. At the end of the year, the figures that appear in this summary report will be compiled into the Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report that can be found in the section below.
Archive of Timely Warnings
The University of Nebraska Police Department provides timely warnings about reported crimes to the campus community, in a manner that will aid in the prevention of similar crimes if it is determined that an ongoing threat exists. Departmental supervisors review all reports taken by the department in a timely manner to determine any offenses that are subject to disclosure and represent an ongoing threat to faculty, staff, and students of the campus community. If it is determined that there is an ongoing threat, the supervisor, or their designee notifies the University’s public information officer, or their designee who will send out a media release, mass e-mail, and/or provides a web post of the incident to help prevent similar crimes from happening. Here you will find an archive of those warnings.
Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics
In 1971, the Crime Commission was assigned the responsibility for the collection of Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Law enforcement agencies in the state are statutorily required to submit monthly Uniform Crime Reports detailing the number of crimes reported or known to them and the number of arrests. The crime statistics are forwarded to the FBI UCR Program for inclusion in national crime statistics and for use by state and local agencies and policy makers.
Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Data Cutting Tool
The link below provides the public, access to a crime and fire data analysis and reporting tool provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education. The data are drawn from the OPE Campus Safety and Security Statistics website database to which crime statistics and fire statistics (as of the 2010 data collection) are submitted annually, via a web-based data collection, by all postsecondary institutions that receive Title IV funding (i.e., those that participate in federal student aid programs). Only data dating back 3 years will be presented for analysis.
