Report shows increase in certain types of crimes on UA campus

Posted: Updated:

The University of Arizona Police Department released its annual Campus Safety, Security and Fire Report Monday.

The 2017 report covers 2014 through 2016.

This year's report showed that sexual assaults increased, as well as burglaries between the years 2015 and 2016.

"One of the questions that's going to be asked is why a change in our sexual assaults. Why more numbers? And I wish I could give you an answer other than we hope that people are reporting these crimes much more often," said UAPD Chief, Brian Seastone.

Reports of robberies, aggravated assaults, stalking, and dating violence, decreased.

Disciplinary action for liquor law violations were up significantly. There were 763 incidents in 2016, up from 457 in 2015. However, drug law arrests and violations saw a drop.
