April 4, 2014 - For the fifth time in the past seven years, the University of Memphis has the lowest crime rate of the ten large universities, both public and private, in Tennessee. According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s 2013 Crime on Campus report, the U of M had an incident rate of 14 per 1,000 campus population. The average for the ten large schools was 23.5 incidents per 1,000. Large campuses are those with more than 5,000 students.

The full report is available online at http://www.tbi.state.tn.us/tn_crime_stats/stats_analys.shtml.

“The tremendous work our detectives have done helped lower crime on our campus 15.3 percent last year,” said Bruce Harber, U of M chief of police.

Contributing to the consistently low incident rate is the University’s Police Services Department; the use of technology, including more than 600 Internet-based video cameras; and the U of M’s steadfast commitment to safety.
