Clery Act

The Annual Campus Security & Fire Safety Reports are published online in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998.

The intent of these reports is to inform the PSU community of the extent of reported crimes occurring in the previous calendar year. Data is collected from a variety of sources; including Portland Police Bureau, University departments such as the Campus Public Safety, Dean of Students Life, Housing and Residence Life, Athletics Department, Human Resources Center, Global Diversity and Inclusion, and the Women’s Resource Center.

Learn more about Clery at the Clery Center for Security on Campus.

Daily Activity Log

The Portland State University Daily Activity Log contains information on recent crimes and incidents that have occurred on the Portland State University campus and surrounding areas. The Crime & Fire Log (also known as the Activity Log) will be updated within two business days from the occurrence of the crime or incident. If you have any information regarding these crimes that could be helpful, please call 503-725-4407. The Daily Activity Log is available for viewing at Campus Public Safety.

According to Federal Law, an institution may withhold any of the required fields of entry (i.e. Classification, Date, Time, Location, and/or Disposition) if any of the following conditions apply:

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

PSU Alert & Timely Warnings

When Campus Public Safety learns of crimes covered by the Clery Act, it will consider whether to issue a campus-wide “timely warning” about the threat. If any other significant emergency or dangerous situation occurs on campus that creates an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees, or otherwise warrants a notification, an “emergency notification” will be issued.
