BUPD maintains a Daily Crime Log and Fire Report that is available to the public upon request. A crime or fire involving on campus student housing must be entered into the log within two business days of when it was reported to University Police or a Campus Security Authority (CSA). The Daily Crime Log can be viewed at the University Police Department, 525 W. Hampton Drive, Indianapolis, Indiana during regular business hours.
Criminal information in the Log will contain BUPD case number, type(s) of crime, date/time of report/occurrence, general location of each crime, Clery geography, and the disposition of the complaint, if known. The entries will contain all crimes reported in an incident. The crime classifications will be Indiana state law violations.
Fires occurring in on campus student housing will contain the BUPD case number, nature/cause of fire, date, time, general location of each fire, and disposition.
Per Federal law, students will never be identified by name or address in the log.
According to Federal Clery 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:
- Prohibited by law;
- Jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim;
- Jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual;
- Cause a suspect to flee or evade detection; and
- Result in the destruction of evidence.
BUPD has access to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s reporting system and checks it on a routine basis for any crimes occurring on or near the Butler University campus. Any criminal activity found will be included in the Daily Crime Log and Fire Report.
