Campus Crime Watch: Cold-hearted thieves


View Campus Crime Watch: January 2013 in a larger map

Since university housing reopened on Jan. 8, there have been 29 violent and property crimes, according to DPS. What’s noteworthy is the relatively low number of laptops thefts. In past months, it was not uncommon for over 10 laptops to be stolen. This month only saw three, so perhaps DPS’s laptop safety program is working.

What’s less encouraging is the apparent rise in the number of burglaries. In the past week alone, there have been four. None, however, were cases of breaking and entering. The best way to ensure a room’s safety is to lock it.
