TBI releases its 2013 "Crime on Campus" study

Posted: Updated:

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's annual crime on campus report presents the nature, volume and extent of reported crime on the campuses and in the housing of Tennessee colleges and universities during calendar year 2013.

Here are some of the findings:

  • Overall, crime reported by Tennessee's colleges and universities decreased by 11.6% from 2012 to 2013.
  • While offenses in the "Larceny/Theft" category decreased, reported instances of Burglary and Robbery increased in the same time period.
  • In contrast to a decrease in the previous year's study, the overall category of "Sex Offenses –Forcible" increased by 25% in 2013.

The TBI's CJIS Support Center publishes the report yearly, as required by the College and University Security Information Act, enacted by the Tennessee General Assembly in 1989.

The full 2013 report, including breakdowns by institution, is available in the "Crime on Campus" section of the TBI website: http://www.tbi.tn.gov/tn_crime_stats/stats_analys.shtml
