Crime Log

The Bradley University Police Department Crime Log contains information on recent crimes and incidents that have occurred on the Bradley University campus and surrounding areas. The Crime Log will be updated within two (2) business days from the occurrence of the crime or incident. If you have any information regarding these crimes that could be helpful, please call (309) 677-2000 or use the Department’s Silent Witness at explore.bradley.edu/police/silent/. A hard copy of the Crime Log is available for viewing at the Bradley University Police Department (1200 W Main St - Unit D) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry (i.e. Classification, Date, Time, Location, and/or Disposition) if any of the following conditions apply:

  • The disclosure is prohibited by law
  • If disclosure would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim
  • If disclosure would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual
  • If disclosure would cause a suspect to flee or evade detection
  • If disclosure would result in the destruction of evidence

Note: Incidents with a case number that start with “NA” involve information received from other University Administrators, who are defined by federal law as “campus security authorities.”  These administrators share non-identifying information with the University Police that is provided by the victim. In these incidents, the victim did not file an official police report, and therefore, it is not always possible to provide information regarding the five areas typically covered in the Crime Log [i.e. Classification, Date Reported, Date/Time Occurred, Location, Off Campus (Y or N), Disposition]. Because an official report was not filed, there will be no disposition. These incidents are reported to the Bradley University Police Department for statistical purposes and are posted to the Crime Log as the information is received by the University Police.
