Crime concerns hang over UC campus

CINCINNATI (AP) -

Overall crime numbers are down, but not the concerns for University of Cincinnati officials and students.

With an urban campus, Cincinnati has long been plagued by off-campus criminals targeting students and staff. The school is spending more on lights, cameras and off-duty patrols, has doubled capacity for a night ride service, and plans to hire at least 10 more university police officers. President Santa Ono (OH'-noh) has been speaking out, and appealed to Hamilton County judges to crack down on predatory criminals targeting UC students.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/1mhWv2X ) that Cincinnati and university police say violent crimes in the areas around campus have decreased by 25 percent over the last five years. However, burglaries increased last year over 2012.

UC is building a database to help spot crime patterns.
