Binghamton University Campus Crime Rate Stable

Crime on the Binghamton University campus, especially disorderly conduct complaints, appears to be trending slightly downward.Campus Police Chief Timothy Faughnan reported to the monthly meeting of the University Council March 15th and said last year his department responded to 4,500 calls with 1,153 crimes.

That number is down by 32 incidents from the previous year.

Faughnan says 215 people were arrested on 266 charges last year and characterized the crime rate on campus as, in his words, “stable.”

Rapes and grand larcenies both decreased while arsons, assaults and burglary complaints increased slightly.

With an increasing growth in the number of students enrolling at B.U., the chief says the crime numbers will reflect the impact of a larger student population. But, Faughnan says, the rates are consistant.

The numbers refect only the calls to which the university law enforcement division responded.
