Annual Safety Statistics Published

Primary tabs

From 2009 to 2011, the number of burglaries reported at Georgia Tech has decreased significantly, from 70 in 2009 to 25 in 2011, according to the Georgia Tech Police Department’s (GTPD) 2012 Campus Safety Report.

This is just one of the pieces of information highlighted in the brochure, which features crime statistics from the past three years, as well as information regarding what GTPD is doing to keep the campus community safe. 

“This brochure is a great resource, in that it highlights the ways that we — and our partners on and off campus — are addressing safety at Georgia Tech,” said Deputy Chief of Police Rob Connolly. “Maintaining a safe campus is a team effort, and this publication helps us keep the lines of communication open with the campus community.”

The brochure was prepared with help from local law enforcement agencies, the Office of Student Integrity, the Women’s Resource Center, Housing and Residence Life. Each group provides updated information regarding their educational efforts and programs. 

Annual information from 2009 to 2011 about the number of crimes such as sex offenses, burglaries, motor vehicle theft and robberies is included in the statistics. The numbers are broken down to show the number of crimes that were committed off campus, on campus, in on-campus residential areas or on public property.

One thing to note is that although the figures in the brochure indicate that robberies (taking or attempting to take anything of value from a person by putting the victim in fear) have increased from 10 in 2009 to 13 in 2011, that number has been decreasing in 2012. 

“Two robberies were reported between January and September of this year, compared to seven reported over the same period in 2011,” said Randy Ory, crime analyst for GTPD.
