Over the past twenty years in the USA, as institutions have grown in size and the student profile has extended over a wider socio‐economic base, campus crime has increased. Details an exploratory comparison of reported crime at 80 campuses and their adjacent cities. Finds that property crimes vastly outnumber violent crimes on campus and that campuses have consistently lower crime rates than adjacent cities. Notes that these findings are generally consonant with prior inquiries. Suggests that campus police might be deployed on neighborhood watch.
