Daily Crime Log
The University of Tampa maintains a Daily Crime Log, for the most recent
60-day period, in the Campus Safety office located at
720 Frederic H. Spaulding St. The Department of Campus Safety
is responsible for maintaining the log on a daily basis. This log is
available for review/inspection by anyone — University community members
or the general public—requesting to see it during regular business
hours. Daily Crime Logs older than the most recent 60-day period are
also available within two (2) business days notice.
entries include all crimes reported to the Department of Campus Safety on campus, in or on non-campus buildings or property, or
on public property within the campus or immediately adjacent to and
accessible from the campus. (See UT Campus Properties Map.)
Sex Offender Registry
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act and the Florida Violent
Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 mandate that higher
education institutions inform their campus communities where information
is available concerning registered sexual offenders.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement website may be used to access all registered sexual offenders in the state of Florida.

campus are provided by local and state law enforcement to the Department of Campus Safety and may be viewed in their office on request.

of Campus Safety, at (813) 257-7777 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Campus crimes statistics are compiled by Campus Safety. This information is obtained in a variety of ways.
These ways include:
- Direct student reports;
- Reports from other crime reporters (see Reporting Crimes);
- Statistics from local and state law enforcement agencies;
- Confidential reports;
- Residence Life staff; and
- Third party reporting.
help prevent crimes or serious incidents, Campus Safety,
in conjunction with other departments on campus, issues Timely Warnings
in order to notify University community members about crimes that may
present a threat to the campus community and to heighten safety
awareness. Members of the campus community who know of a crime or other
serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to the
Department of Campus Safety so that a Timely Warning can be
issued, if warranted.
If community members report crimes or
serious incidents to other University administrators, those
administrators will notify the Department of Campus Safety. Timely Warnings are issued when the director of Campus Safety and the dean of students determine, after the report of a
serious crime, that there is a continuing threat to the University
community. A serious crime includes: criminal homicide, murder,
manslaughter, sex offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor
vehicle theft, arson, hate crimes, and similar criminal conduct.
Representatives of these offices will promptly notify and collaborate
with the Department of Campus Safety to issue a Timely
Warning, if one is appropriate.
Whenever it is determined that
there is an ongoing danger to the safety of students, faculty and staff,
Timely Warnings are distributed by Campus Safety and
Residence Life personnel to on-campus offices, residence halls and other
campus buildings. In addition, they are posted on the UT website on
the Campus Safety page. Every attempt will be made to distribute
the Timely Warning as soon as is reasonably possible after the incident
is reported. However, the release is subject to the availability of
accurate facts concerning the incident.
Statistical crime reporting is not limited to campus buildings and streets. A detailed map (PDF)
has been included to designate the precise area in which campus crime
statistics are reported. This may include public property, city
roadways, and adjacent sidewalks if they are reasonably contiguous to
our campus area.
