KU police say crime has decreased sharply on campus

May 12, 2014


Kansas University police say crime at the school last year was down significantly from the year before.

The university’s public safety office says it handled 670 criminal offenses during 2013, compared with 818 the previous year.

Violent crimes accounted for only 1 percent of all offenses, while property crimes such as theft and burglary made up the majority.

There were 36 burglaries reported in 2013, including 10 auto burglaries.

Campus police chief Ralph Oliver says increased use of closed-circuit cameras on campus allows his department to monitor parking lots for suspicious activity.

The rape crisis on college campuses is a national travesty. KU is not immune. Many rapes are not reported on college campuses. University administrators call forcible rape: "nonconsensual sex". Give me a break.
