Q. Where can I find information and statistics on crime on college campuses?

I need the history of campus crime and information on prevention techniques.

Answer

If you are interested in national campus crimes, Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education collects data about campus crime at this website, http://ope.ed.gov/security/ . It even has functionality to restrict a search to Texas institutions when you look up criminal activity.


You may also be interested in the FBI’s report on Campus Attacks located here:

For general campus crime research, including prevention programs a good place to start research is on our Criminal Justice library guide found here: http://library.uhd.edu/cj. Choose a database and search terms like:

campus AND crime

universities AND “crime prevention”

campus AND “crime prevention”  

Academic Search Complete and Criminal Justice Abstracts may be good databases to start with.
