CRIME LOG INSTRUCTIONS

Crimes are listed in chronological order based upon the date they are reported to the Southwestern College Police Department.

The crime log classification will not normally match the crime statistics, as the crime log is compiled using the California Crimes Code and the crime statistics are required by law to be compiled using the Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Summary Reporting System (SRS) definitions and standards and of National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) definitions as required by the Clery Act.

Hard copies of the Crime Logs are also available at the Southwestern College Police Department, Room 105D, and at each of the Higher Educations Centers and Crown Cove Aquatics Center during normal business hours:

Chula Vista Campus: 900 Otay Lakes Road Chula Vista CA, 91910
Otay Mesa HEC: 8100 Gigantic Street San Diego, CA 92154
San Ysidro HEC: 460 W. San Ysidro Blvd. San Ysidro, CA 92173
National City HEC: 880 National City Blvd. National City, CA 91950
Crown Cove Aquatics Center: 5000 Highway 75 Coronado, CA 92118

According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry, i.e. the nature, date, time, 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
