Burglaries down, aggravated assault up, according to UC Davis stats

daviscop.JPGThe annual crime statistics for UC Davis show a big drop in burglaries from the year before.

Each year, the university must collect the crime figures under the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

The Clery report tallies crimes at locations that include the University of California, Davis campus and the UC Davis Health System campus in Sacramento. It also includes reports taken by police agencies with jurisdiction next to university properties.

In addition, the numbers include crimes only disclosed to victims' advocates through the Campus Violence Prevention Program or to college coaches.

A portion of 2012 statistics:

  • 55 burglaries reported, down form 96 in 2011 and 88 in 2010.
  • 15 vehicle thefts, compared to 16 in 2011.
  • 18 forcible sex offenses reported, compared to 24 in 2011.
  • 9 cases of aggravated assault, compared to 4 from 2011.
  • 22 arrests for drugs, compared to 24 from 2011.
  • 29 liquor offenses, compared to 54 in 2011

The university took disciplinary action in 71 cases for drugs and 282 for liquor, according to a university press release. No hate crimes, as defined by the Clery Act, were reported, according to the release.

The most common crime on campus remains bicycle theft.
