Crime and Fire Log
We maintain a campus daily crime and fire log in the Public Safety Command Center located at the entrance of Adelphi University Garden City campus and at the main front desk of the Manhattan, Hauppauge, and Hudson Valley centers.
The daily crime log at each location records all crimes reported to the University by the category of crime, incident number, date of crime, time of occurrence, general location, and disposition if known. Public Safety must make these entries except where such disclosures are prohibited by law or would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim.
Said information may also be withheld if there was clear and convincing evidence that the release of the information would
- jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual
- cause the suspect to flee or evade detection
- or result in the destruction of evidence
The Department must disclose any information once the adverse effect described above is no longer likely to occur. The department may withhold only that information that would cause the adverse effects described above.
A daily crime log entry or change in the disposition is recorded within two business days of the reporting of the crime. The crime log is accessible for public inspection during normal business hours for the most recent 60-day period. Any request for the portion of the log over the 60-day period will be made available within two business days of a public request.
In addition, we maintain a daily campus fire log in the public safety command center at Levermore Hall. This log records incident number, date of fire, time of occurrence, general location of the fire in a residence hall, and cause if known. The fire log is accessible for public view for the most recent 60-day period during normal business hours. The University will make available any portion of the log older than 60 days within two business days of a request for inspection.
