CrimeClock

No campus-related homicides.


1 Life Saving episode by a UT System Police Officer every 52 days.

 

1 suicide every 73 days System-wide (Director’s note: includes non-students on campus. Suicides appear to rise with the last portion of the semester or grading period. The majority of these tragedies are tied to a failed relationship with a former significant other, disappointment in academic achievement or estrangement from campus life in general.)


1 sexual assault every 23 days System-wide (Director’s note:  although not always the case, a significant number of these assaults involve a prior domestic relationship between the perpetrator and victim)


1 robbery every 23 days System-wide (Director’s note: the typical robbery scenario involves a non-UT affiliated perpetrator entering the campus and committing the offense)


1 assault every 1+ days System-wide (Director’s note: this category includes domestic assaults which is a greater concern than many might imagine on campus)


1 burglary every 2+ days System-wide (Director's note: dormitory rooms and offices are overwhelmingly the location of choice)


6 thefts every day System-wide (Director’s note: The items stolen in the greatest numbers are bicycles, laptop computers, cellular telephones, electronic notepads and backpacks)


1 auto theft every 6.5 days System-wide (Director’s note:  we have a particular concern that a number of auto thefts involves vehicles targeted, stolen from a campus and transported across the border into Mexico)


1 arson every 121 days System-wide


10 Part II crimes every day System-wide (DUI, drugs, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, criminal mischief, forgery, fraud, weapons offenses, other family violence, stolen property)


2+ students arrested every day System-wide (custodial and non-custodial arrests—Director’s note:  a custodial arrest involves booking the arrestee into jail while a non-custodial arrest involves issuing a citation to appear in court in lieu of jail booking) 


4+ non-students arrested every day System-wide (custodial and non-custodial arrests)

 

237 calls for service every day System wide (Director’s note:  a call for service is a request for police service placed with the respective police department; can be communicated by a wide range of means)
