How to read the map

Each marker on the map below represents a location where crimes have been reported at the U of S. Colours represent how many crimes have been reported at each location from Jan. 1, 2007 until Dec. 31, 2012.

Possible reported crimes include: sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, break and enter, drunk driving, trespassing, theft, car theft, assault, fraud, drug telated, alcohol and gambling infractions, driving infractions, stolen property, mischief, weapons, harassment, disturbance and moral crimes, which include public indecency and public display of pornography.

Difficulties mapping crime on campus

Campus Safety spokesperson Harold Shiffman said it is up to reporting officers to log crime reports into the computer system and that often the location of a call can get mixed up with the location of an incident.

He added that a few of the locations may be incorrect. Officers do not always “go back and change” the location of the service call in the department’s software after completing their reports.

He also said that when crime occurs off campus, the incident is usually marked where officers took the service call.

“Let’s say you were assaulted by another student off campus. The incident might get associated with a location but maybe that location is your residence because that’s where you called us, or maybe it’s the Campus Safety building because that’s where you came to report it,” Shiffman said, pointing to an assault recorded at McEown Park that he believes occurred off campus.

“You need to be careful with your inferences but it doesn’t necessarily mean every single one of these calls happened off campus or that they are incorrect. It would be a very small subset of these numbers that are not 100 per cent.”
