November 2005 Public Safety Blotter

Mills Public Safety Activity Report November 2005

Daily activity reports represent calls to Public Safety received at the gatehouse and those forwarded by field staff for documentation. The information contained is not presented as factual, rather it is as reported. It allows the Mills community members to see the volume and general nature of activity in any given part of the campus. Activity reports are taken straight from communication logs. Please keep in mind some crimes and activities must be screened due to restrictions and privacy rights of victims.


Public Safety officers have the authority to issue parking tickets, which are billed to financial accounts of students, faculty and staff. Public Safety officers do not possess arrest power. Criminal incidents are referred to the local police. The Public Safety Department maintains a highly professional working relationship with the Oakland Police Department. All crime victims and witnesses are strongly encouraged to immediately report the crime to Public Safety, Division of Student Life and the appropriate police agency. Prompt reporting will assure timely warning notices on-campus and timely disclosure of crime statistics. Calls are classified as they are received and dispatched. The description of the incident is documented by the gatehouse security staff at the time it is first reported to security and does not necessarily reflect the actual event. For example: A student reports a robbery and requests security come and take a report, but later the security staff finds out it is actually a burglary. This would be listed on the activity log as a robbery-as it was called in, even though it was actually a burglary.

*Lost and Found has been moved to Sage Hall room I39*
