Teleconference takes
on campus crime

ly Asbeley C. Riley
)aily Staff Reporter
A national teleconference sparked
li sion about campus crime, federal
>o and crime prevention on Monday
n the Michigan Union.
A panel of experts in law and higher
ducation led the teleconference, which
vas presented by the University of
/ermont. The program, titled
'Protecting your Campus from Crime:
"lhallenges and Solutions," offered
rpdated information on the status of sev-
ral laws, including the Accuracy and
mpus Crime Reporting Act of 1997.
Wnelist Lee Liggett, consulting
ttorney based in Houston, said cam-
uses nationwide aren't different from
ther areas of a community.
"When you send Muffy and Scooter
o college, you aren't sending them to
n isolated enclave that is void of
rime," Liggett said. "You're sending
hem to a place that is, in essence, a
nicrocosm of society."
'ett also said increased media
rr ge of campus crimes raises more
oncerns for students and parents.
Several experts clarified the Crime
Awareness and Campus Security Act of
990 and other federal laws during the
The existing laws require that certain

steps betaken. First, crimes must be report-
ed and then the reportsamustbe distributed
to faculty and students of that university.
Each university also is required to
establish policies that deal with the
aftermath of particular crimes. Finally,
universities must implement programs
that teach crime prevention.
The new ACCRA would require uni-
versities to send annual reports to the
Department of Education and make daily
crime logs available to the public. One of
the controversies of the act is it may allow
suspects namesato be made public. Arson,
vandalism, simple assault and larceny
charges would be included in the reports.
Bernie Pleskoff, dean of campus life
at Loyola University in Chicago, said
more students in college intensify crime
problems on campuses.
"There are 50 million more people in
the United States, which means that
there are more people in college than
ever before," he said. "People bring
their problems from society to campus.
We're looking at this in terms of the
greater society."
In compliance with the Crime
Awareness and Security Act of 1990, a
part of the Student Right-to-Know and
Campus Security Act, the University of
Michigan prepares an annual Campus
Safety Handbook and distributes it to

students, facutty and stan.
Department of Public Safety Captain
Jim Smiley said the University does not
have complete statistics about off-cam-
pus crime.
"Off campus crime reports are prob-
ably not as well reported as we'd like
them to be," Smiley said.
The discrepancy exists because the
definition of on-campus crime and off-
campus crime is obscure. For example, a
robbery committed three blocks away
from campus may not be reported. But a
rape at a fraternity house 15 blocks away
from campus must be reported in accor-
dance with campus crime laws, said Art
Otey, director of public safety at the
University of Missouri.
The teleconference was sponsoredby
the University Office of the Vice-
President for Student Affairs, DPS, the
Office of the General Counsel and the
Housing Office.
