The Daily Crime & Fire Log (DCFL) is updated every business day. It provides information about crimes that have been reported to the UC Santa Barbara Police Department, and fires that have occurred in on-campus student housing facilities. Crimes and fires appearing on the DCFL are listed in chronological order, with the most recent occurrences located at the bottom of the list. A hard copy of the Daily Crime & Fire Log is available on campus during normal business hours at the UC Santa Barbara Police Department (Public Safety Building #574, located at the intersection of Stadium and Mesa Roads).

Crimes that list "CSA Report" as the disposition pertain to information received from university personnel who do not work for UCPD, but who are designated as Campus Security Authorities (CSA) under the federal Clery Act. CSAs submit a report for statistical purposes only when a crime is disclosed to them, as required by the Clery Act.  In these cases, if the victim did not also file a  police report, the required elements disclosed on the DCFL are not always known (i.e. Nature/Classification, Date and Time Reported, Date and Time Occurred, General Location, Disposition). Fires occurring in on-campus student housing that are unintentional are not crimes and, therefore, do not receive a disposition.

New or updated information learned that changes anything previously posted to the DCFL is noted in red font. According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry, (i.e. the nature, dates, times, location and/or disposition) if any of the following conditions apply:

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