Colleges Report 7.500 Violent Crimes on Their Campuses in First Annual Statements Required under Federal Law.
Lederman, Douglas
Chronicle of Higher Education, v39 n20 pA32-33 Jan 20 1993
In response to the federal requirement to supply security statistics on campus crime, about 2,400 colleges and universities have reported a total of 30 murders, almost 1,000 rapes, and over 1,800 robberies. However, violent crimes were outnumbered by property crimes such as burglary (32,127) and car theft (8,981). The lack of reporting guidelines makes comparisons difficult. (MSE)
