The following is a series of daily crime reports issued by the University of Missouri-St. Louis Police Department since September 8. Reports for September 13 and beyond have not yet been made available on the online Daily Incident/Fire Log that the UMSL PD is required to keep updated under the Clery Act.
The Clery Act is a federal law that requires UMSL to actively log any incidents on campus within two business days in a way that is accessible to the public. As reported in previous crime reports, any school that violate any part of the Clery Act can face anything from a fine up to $35,000 to the loss of federal aid and eligibility in student aid programs. With some exceptions, a college must update their daily incident log within two days of a report being filed.

During the day, a student reported a fall at the Social Sciences and Business Building on September 8 that resulted in a fractured toe.
