Institutions are not required to report statistics for crimes reported to a pastoral or professional counselor. The statistics must not identify a victim or person accused of committing a crime.  SAGU’s crime statistics are submitted to the Department of Education. The Department is required to make the statistics available to the public.

SAGU University makes timely reports to the campus community of crimes considered a threat to students and employees that are reported to campus security authorities or to local police agencies. Institutions are not required to issue a timely warning based on the same circumstances that lead to an emergency notification.

Crime Log

Beginning October 1, 2010, the Campus Security Department is required to keep a Crime Log that is open for public inspection. It will be updated within two days that each report is turned in. It can be accessed by visiting our office Monday through Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. For more information call Security at 972-923-5400.

The log records, by the date a crime was reported, any crime reported to the campus security department that occurred on campus, in or on a non-campus building or property, on public property, or within the patrol jurisdiction of the campus police or the campus security department. The log includes the nature, date, time, and general location of each crime, and the disposition of the complaint if known.

An entry to the log, or an addition to an entry, are made within two business days of the report of the information to the Campus Security Department, unless the disclosure is prohibited by law or would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim. Information may be withheld if there is clear and convincing evidence that the release of the information would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence. Once the adverse effect is no longer likely to occur, the information must be disclosed.

The crime log for the most recent 60 days is open to public inspection during normal business hours. Portions of the log older than 60 days are available for public inspection within two business days of a request.
