Crime decreasing at UA Fairbanks

Posted: Tuesday, February 09, 2010

FAIRBANKS - Crime has been declining at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the campus police chief says he doesn't know why. But maybe, Chief Sean McGee says, they are more good kids.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says campus police made 220 arrests last year, mostly for drug and alcohol violations. That's down from 245 arrests in 2008 and 315 in 2007. Burglary reports had the biggest decline in the past two years. In 2007, campus police had 30 reports, but just four reports last year.
