1,108 crimes were reported on the BU campus in 2005.

That's 78 more reports than the year before.

The Public Safety Office reports an increase in Criminal Mischief, Vehicle and Traffic violations, and off-campus crimes involving BU students.

"I think it was a good report. We are looking at those areas where we see a spike like criminal mischief and we're going to look at ways of reducing that," says Director of Public Safety John Schwartz.

The number of sexual assaults on campus decreased over the past year.

There were 3 reported rapes with 2 arrests in 2005.

That's down from 5 reported sexual assaults in 2004.
