Crime & Fire Log

All crimes reported to BYU Police and fires in on campus housing facilities.

Police Beat

Police response to a variety of types of non-criminal assistance calls as well as criminal response.
  • Throughout the year over 30,000 students, faculty, employees, and visitors can be found on the BYU campus. The BYU Police department patrols the BYU campus and responds to calls for service from anyone, anywhere on campus or at the Y trail. All BYUPD officers are state-certified law enforcement officers. Law enforcement on university and college campuses is a unique environment. Campuses like BYU are about the size of a city contained within a much smaller geographical area. Student families, single students, visitors, and everyone who works or teaches on campus make up our campus community. Like any other law enforcement agency, calls for service at BYU can be either criminal or non-criminal in nature. The Police Beat and the Crime Log are two ways to explore the types of calls officers respond to every day.

    The Crime and Fire Log includes all criminal incidents reported to BYU Police and any fires in on-campus housing facilities in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, also called the Clery Act.

    The Police Beat contains all other types of calls including fires outside of campus housing, medical calls, and requests for assistance, and may also contain criminal response. In addition to the incidents logged in the Police Beat and Crime Log, BYU Police also responds to alarms on campus, provides dignitary protection and event security, patrols campus, investigates crimes, participates in officer training exercises, and conducts safety trainings on campus.
