October 2005 Public Safety Blotter

Mills Public Safety Activity Report October 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.


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.
