Crime Watch

The College maintains ongoing crime and fire logs that are available for inspection in the Office of Campus Security. Information from these logs is published and posted throughout campus twice per month during the academic year, and monthly during the summer, to ensure easy access by members of the College community.

Listed below is information from the most recent issue of the Elmhurst College Crime Watch publication. The purpose of the Crime Watch is to keep College community members informed so they can better safeguard themselves and their belongings.
