In making the decision to issue a timely warning, consideration will be given to the nature of the incident, the continuing danger to the campus community and, when the timely warning is issued, whether it will compromise a law enforcement agency's investigation. The timely warning can be issued to the campus community through any available media: electronic communications; local press and broadcast media; the student newspaper; employee newsletter; leaflet; and flyer. Crimes reported to pastoral and professional counselors do not trigger timely warning obligations.
D-1. Emergency reports of a crime against persons or property or other unsafe situation occurring on campus should be made immediately to the local police agency by calling 911 (or 8-911 if the call is from the Idaho Falls campus). Non-emergencies can be reported to the Director of Emergency Management and Security Services (DESS) by calling (208) 885-2254 or emailing campus-security email.

b. If a timely warning is required, DESS or designee will work with University Communications and Marketing (Communications) and the Office of General Counsel to develop the communication statement and strategy to best notify the campus community.
Timely warnings will include:
i. The nature of the crime or unsafe situation;
ii. The location of the occurrence;

See APM 95.20, Sexual Assault G-2 for non-forcible sex offense disclosure.
I. Daily Crime Log. The University of Idaho and the City of Moscow contract for police services for the Moscow campus. The Moscow Police Department (MPD) maintains statistics on all criminal activity which occurs within its jurisdiction, including the Moscow Campus of the University of Idaho.
The log is available at Moscow police website under daily activity log or at the MPD at 118 East 4th Street, Moscow, Idaho. The most recent 60 days of the crime log must be made available immediately during normal business hours for inspection. Inspection of the log for terms beyond 60 days must be made available in two business days. These guidelines include the general public and media.
Reports of Clery crimes from Campus Security Authorities are entered into the log when they have been reported to the police. If the police were not notified, the information is not placed on the log but will be included in the annual statistics.
The nature of the crime, date the crime was reported, date and time crime occurred, location of the crime and the disposition of the complaint must be contained in the log. The crime log must be retained for three years after last date of publication (in effect, seven years).
The University of Idaho has three other locations – Coeur d'Alene, Boise and Idaho Falls. These locations do not maintain a crime log because they do not have a security department or contract with a police agency for services.
The University may temporarily withhold placing a crime or complaint in the log if doing so will jeopardize an on-going investigation, jeopardize the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence. It should be clearly documented what was withheld and when the information was included in the log.
Only a crime that has been investigated by commissioned law enforcement personnel can be determined unfounded. The crime cannot be removed from the log when it is considered unfounded. It can be documented in the disposition as unfounded. It would not be considered in the statistics for that period.
J. Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. Risk prepares the annual security and fire safety report which discloses security and safety policies and crime statistics to inform the campus community and comply with the Clery Act. Crime statistics are solicited, collected and compiled from Campus Security Authorities and law enforcement agencies. The annual disclosure is available to the campus community and input into the Department of Education's web application by October 1st, of each year. The campus community is sent an email (for facilities staff who has limited email availability, a letter is sent) stating what is contained in the report and its availability. A copy of the report may be obtained at the Risk Management Office, located in the Administration Building, Room 209, by emailing a request to campus-security email, or by calling (208) 885-7177 to request a copy. An electronic copy is available on the Security website at University of Idaho security, under "Security & Fire Safety Report".
