According to recent news by the UC Santa Cruz, the UC Santa Cruz Police Department has launched a new website mapping crime reports on the UC Santa Cruz campus community. The new website that offers the campus community the opportunity to view information on crime reports, missing people, stolen vehicles, and more on a map of campus.
The new website provides the community with information about safety issues so that they may take appropriate and timely measures to take care of themselves and others.
This website also gives users the option to narrow a search by date (up to 30 days in the past) and type of crime report. Users can also see crime reports as pushpins or a heat map.
This new site will pull the media log, Clery Act crime and fire log, as well as the other pertinent information into one place. The Clery Act log will include information for the past 60 days. The department has long posted a summary of crime reports on its website. However, the new site pulls that information and overlays it on a map.
Each October, the department releases the Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report, which provides crime statistics as well as information on safety and security prevention and protection programs and much more. In addition, the University of California publishes a report on crime throughout the UC system.
