The aim of this paper is to provide an analysis on crime rates at university campuses across the United States. I will outline the specific types of crime occurring on and in the immediate vicinity of ten college campuses. I will also outline the measures taken by local police and administration to curb the spread of crime on campuses, including public outreach programs and the increased availability of resources used to report and respond to crimes. I hope to identify patterns both in policy and in the crime rates that can be identified to better help colleges and universities that are experiencing upticks in crime to help combat and reduce their crime rates. The analysis is currently in progress and will be provided before the standard deadline.
