Crime Alerts

Crime Alerts are posted for the current semester.


The Baylor Police Department is giving notice to the Baylor Community that there have been several thefts of unattended computer laptops and Apple iPads. Over the past two weeks, several thefts have been reported at Moody Library. We also have had individual thefts reported at Penland Hall, the Baylor Science Building and Old Main.

Each of these thefts occurred when the property was left unattended. Please take steps to secure your personal property while in any Baylor facility. Although there are no identified suspects, if you witness any suspicious persons or activities on campus please call the Baylor Police Department at 254-710-2222.


On Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 1:42 p.m. the Baylor Police Department received a phone call reporting possible shots fired in the area of Third Street and LaSalle Avenue. The Baylor University Police Department and Waco Police Department immediately responded and canvassed the area. It was determined that the noise was caused by dumpsters being dropped in the concrete as they were repositioned.


At approximately 8:23 p.m. The Baylor Police Department was alerted by the Waco Police Department that a caller had advised them that they heard what they thought may have been a shot fired in the area of 8th Street and Bagby Avenue. A Baylor police officer was patrolling in the area at the time and also heard a loud bang which he thought could have been a gunshot. The officer immediately began searching the area and was quickly joined by other officers from the Baylor Police Department and the Waco Police Department. The officers from both departments canvassed the area and found no evidence to substantiate that a firearm had been discharged. From the investigation, it appears that at no time was there any threat to the Baylor campus or the areas immediately adjacent to the campus.

On February 7, 2014 at 3:38 p.m. the Baylor Police Department received a report of a purse being stolen by two female suspects and the suspects were fleeing the building. The suspects were described as:

2. White female, 5'4", 130 lbs., brown hair, black and white knit cap, black and white plaid coat, blue jeans, black tennis shoes.

The complainant chased the suspects who ran from the building. The suspects then fled northbound on University Parks Dr. in a tan over blue 1993 GMC Suburban.

No weapons were involved and there is not continuing threat to Baylor Campus.

The Baylor Police Department was able to obtain the license plate of the vehicle and is actively investigating the incident. 


Shortly before 5 a.m. Wednesday, January 29th, four shots were fired at La Mirage Apartments, located just off the Baylor campus at 909 Baylor Ave. The shots apparently were fired into the air. A suspect was identified as a black male, slender build wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. No injuries were reported.

Baylor and Waco Police cordoned off the area. The campus was thoroughly explored. There was no threat to the university, but officers wanted students to be aware that this incident occurred.
