1 campus-related homicide.


1 Life Saving episode by a UT System Police Officer every 91 days. (Director's note: these heroic events typically involve reviving those who have collapsed from a heart attack, rescuing a trapped victim from vehicle involved in a major crash or negotiating to safety a potential suicide victim)

CrimeClock

 

1 suicide every 73 days System-wide (Director’s note: The majority of these tragedies are tied to a failed relationship with a former significant other, disappointment in academic achievement, social isolation or estrangement from campus life in general)


1 sexual assault every 28 days System-wide (Director’s note:  although not always the case, a significant number of these offenses involve the perpetrator and victim being known to one another through a social relationship or setting with alcohol as a contributing factor)


1 robbery every 28 days System-wide (Director’s note: the typical robbery scenario involves a non-UT affiliated perpetrator entering the campus and committing the offense - an absence of situational awareness on the part of the victim is often involved)


1 assault every 1+ days System-wide (Director’s note: this category includes domestic violence 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)


5+ 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 10 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 52 days System-wide
(Director's Note: this most often involves very minor trash and paper fires)


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


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) 


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

 

3,452 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)
