Clarification

In the story “Overall crime numbers down on campus, but dangerous nighttime incidents growing” (OCN – Sept. 9, 2005), it was reported that while measures such as increased foot patrols by Campus Safety officers have helped to reduce many crime statistics at the University, there has been an increase in dangerous situations at night. OCN also reported that a summer incident at Louis’ pub saw 100 people get violent and threaten campus special constables.

In fact, only a small number of the people in the Louis’ incident became violent, it was an isolated incident, and Campus Safety Director Bob Ferguson says Louis’ and his office are working to ensure safe events. Ferguson adds that while drug incidents and violent confrontations have increased on campus, they stem from outside people and are directed at Campus Safety officers, not at the general campus population. He stresses that the situation appears to be well under control and in general the U of S campus is safe.
