Crime - Sacto 911

Crime falls at Sacramento State in 2013

Crime on the Sacramento State University campus declined last year, according to information reported under the federal Clery Act.

The campus reported one sex offense, compared to three in 2012 and two in 2011. The assault took place at a residential facility on campus, according to the report.

Burglary took a big dip as well, with only nine reports in 2013, compared to 34 in 2012. Drug arrests also plummeted from 13 in 2012 to seven that same year. Motor vehicle thefts went down in 2013, with two reports of car theft compared to five the year before.

Some crimes increased. Robberies and aggravated assaults went up, as did weapons arrests. The increases were slight, however. Robberies went from 0 in 2012 to 1 in 2013, and aggravated assaults increased to two in 2013, from one in 2012. Weapons arrests increased from three in 2012 to four in 2013.

The Clery Act requires college campuses to tally reports of crime on or near their campuses.
