The Auraria Police Department has issued its Campus Security and Safety Report for 2011. In all but one of the nine categories, crime rates decreased from 2010. Four of the categories continue to have no instances of a crime being committed since 2009.
The report compares crimes committed on campus in 2011 with the previous two years. In the category of criminal offenses, there were no cases of manslaughter or murder on campus in any of the three years. There was one case of "forcible sexual fondling" in 2011, down one case from the previous year. Motor vehicle theft decreased five cases from the previous year. There was a noticeable rise in burglaries; however this increase was largely attributed to a rash of burglaries committed by one individual who has been arrested.
None of the criminal offenses listed in the table below were hate-crime oriented. However, in 2011 there was one hate crime that was race-, religion-, and sexual orientation-based in the Intimidation/Threat category, a category not included in the table.
