Description

In this four-part series, advanced journalism students from the University of Connecticut examine rising crime statistics and the various new types of crime at the UConn campus at Storrs, CT. Using data from the university's police department and Uniform Crime Reports, reporters found that the UConn police department was greatly understaffed despite increasing student numbers and rising crime. They also discovered that problems such as poor dormitory security and underage alcohol abuse contributed to the increase in serious and violent crime on campus.
