Campus Safety & Security Statistics

Unfortunately, schools, colleges, and university campuses have become places where students are exposed to safety concerns.

Incidents range from theft, violence, and harassment to firearms-related crimes. These issues have raised significant worries about the well-being and security of students on campus.

Employees, students, and visitors should be able to come and go from campus without fearing for their safety.

By carefully implementing mobile surveillance cameras, campus safety can be dramatically increased and safety fears reduced.

Below, LotGuard highlights some recently released campus-related crime statistics and explains how our surveillance solution can assist in deterring crime before it happens.

The study revealed that race constituted the most significant portion of reported crimes, accounting for 45%, followed by sexual orientation at 22%.
