Offenses Known to Law Enforcement
by State by University and College, 2008
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
This table provides the volume of violent crime (murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) and property crime (burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) as reported by university/college law enforcement agencies (listed alphabetically by state) that contributed data to the UCR Program.
Caution against ranking
Readers should take into consideration relevant factors in addition to an areas’ crime statistics when making any valid comparisons of crime among different locales. Variables Affecting Crime provides more details concerning the proper use of UCR statistics.
- The data used in creating this table were from all university/college law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete offense data for 2008.
- The FBI does not publish arson data unless it receives data from either the agency or the state for all 12 months of the calendar year.
- The student enrollment figures provided by the U.S. Department of Education are for 2007, the most recent data available. They include full- and part-time students.
- When the FBI determines that an agency’s data collection methodology does not comply with national UCR guidelines, the figure for that agency’s offense(s) will not be included in the table, and the discrepancy will be explained in a footnote.
