UNR Publishes Campus Crime Stats



The University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) announced today the publication of its annually required campus crime statistics.

All colleges and universities that participate in federal aid programs are required by federal law to publish the data.

“The information contained in our 2014 Annual Security and Fire Safety Report complies with the requirement of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998,” said UNR Vice President Ron Zurek in the report.

While the report details campus safety initiatives, policies and issues, at the back of the document are tables that show the number of crimes committed a three UNR properties.

UNR’s main campus and “cooperative extensions,” which include public property, dorms and non-campus buildings, list the following changes in years 2012, 2013 and 2014:

  1. An increase in forcible sex offenses from one in 2013 to six in 2014.
  2. A reduction in burglaries from 19 in 2013 to three in 2014.
  3. A reduction of motor vehicle thefts from 4 in 2013 to one in 2014.
  4. A reduction of arson cases from three in 2012 to one in 2013 and one in 2014.
  5. No hate crimes.
  6. An increase in liquor law arrests, from 152 in 2012 and 141 and 2013 to 189 in 2014. (Disciplinary actions for liquor violations are down from 220 in 2012 and 324 in 2013 to 320 in 2014.)
  7. An increase in stalking incidences from zero in 2012 and 2013 to four in 2014.

Documented crime at the School of Medicine and Redfield Campus is virtually non-existent.

In all, given UNR’s dramatically growing student population, estimated now at close to 21,000, criminal activity remains relatively low.

“This report contains information on crime statistics for the calendar year 2014 as well as information on various safety resources on campus,” wrote Adam Garcia, director of police services. “As you will see, our campus continues to be a very safe community in which to work, study and visit.”
