TBI Releases Crime On Campus Report

A new report shows that there was one rape, and two incidents of kidnapping on the campus of Tennessee Tech University in the year 2010. There was also one report of robbery and one of what's called "forcible fondling." The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday released the 2010 "Crime on Campus" Report which shows a statewide decrease of crime on Tennessee’s campuses after a slight spike in reported offenses for the previous year. Prior to 2009, the state saw a decrease of crime on campus every year between 2004 and 2008. At Tech, the most common crimes are still listed as either theft or vandalism, but there were also 25 burglaries reported, 24 drug violations, and 22 assaults. University officials say arrests were made in both the robbery and kidnapping cases.
