The Philadelphia Inquirer investigates crime statistics at the University of Pennsylvania since the passage of the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. The act requires universities to compile, publish and distribute annual statistics about crimes that have occurred on their campuses. The Inquirer's story reveals a loophole that allowed Penn to discount more than 90 percent of the armed robberies that occurred in its patrol area by defining them as "off-campus" crimes.
