Crime Log Definitions


Crime Log Definitions

The following are definitions of the dispositions used for the UCCS crime log.

Closed: No further investigative action is required.

Closed by Arrest: The individual or individuals have been taken into custody in reference to a pervious crime or have been charged in relations to a new crime.

Closed by Referral: the individual(s) involved in the case have been referred to a non-law enforcement campus entity (Dean or Students and/or Residence Life and Housing).

Open: The case is currently under active investigation by University Police personnel.

Open-Inactive: The case has been left open but is not being actively investigated.

Unfounded: The case is determined through investigation to be false or baseless.

Closed Exceptionally: A case which is closed for one of the following reasons:

  1. Death of the offender
  2. Prosecution was declined by the court
  3. Extradition was denied for a crime committed outside of the arresting agency's jurisdiction
  4. The victim refused to cooperate with further investigation
  5. Juvenile involvement when the suspect is not taken into custody

Outside Agency: These cases came from outside agencies (Colorado Springs Police Department, El Paso County Sheriff's Office, and/or Colorado State Patrol) upon request from UCCS PD to gather statistics for our Annual Security and Fire Safety Report. These cases are not in chronological order by date of offense; they have been added once they are received from an outside agency. The disposition may or may not have been provided, if it has been it will be included in the case disposition.
* Please note, these cases are going to be from the previous year.
