The University of California, Davis, had its share of crime in 2011, according to the latest statistical report to the U.S. Department of Education.
In 2011, with a student enrollment of about 30,000, the campus recorded 96 burglaries, compared with 88 in 2010. There were 24 forcible sexual offenses, compared with 21 the previous year.
There were five robberies and four aggravated assaults in 2011 compared with two and 11, respectively, in 2010.
There were no homicides, as in 2010.
Other crimes included drug arrests 24 for each of the two years. The number of students referred for internal university discipline rather than arrest fell from 87 to 67.
Liquor arrests rose in the comparison from 44 to 54. And disciplinary actions for liquor use grew from 208 in 2010 to 258 in 2011.
One hate crime, graffiti with a homophobic slur, was reported, according to campus officials. The 2010 report showed eight hate crimes five damage incidents, two assaults and one threat.
Under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure Act, universities must report crime statistics yearly to the U.S. Department of Education and make the data available to students, faculty and staff members.
UC Davis Police Chief Matt Carmichael said the statistics show the campus to be relatively safe. The data include specific crimes reported on or adjacent to campus property as well as off-campus at property owned or controlled by the campus. That includes the UC Davis Health System site in Sacramento.
The report is online at www.police.ucdavis.edu. Search the word, "Clery."
