Welcome to the Indy’s first weekly police blotter.
In light of the Sexual Conduct Survey and recent concerns regarding campus safety for students, the Indy thought it would be wise to make HUPD’s police records more readily available to the student body. Below we have briefly summarized the past two weeks and carefully selected some incidents from 9/24/15 to 9/29/15. If you would like the entire report (without our commentary), click here. Please note that in printing this information, we are merely republishing data that is already available to the public on HUPD’s public police log.
Two Week Summary
The above chart was created using data from HUPD’s online public police log. The graph covers the time period from 9/17/15 to 9/26/15. The “other” section indicates incidents in the categories of “fire,” “field investigation,” motor vehicle accident,” and “threat.” These incidents were grouped together because they occurred only once and were not considered crimes that put the undergraduate population in immediate danger.
