DANVILLE — Community colleges and universities are not immune to safety concerns on their campuses.

According campus safety and security data provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education, the number of crimes reported on the campus of Danville Area Community College is extremely low when compared with other two-year public colleges in Illinois.

In a three-year period between 2009 and 2011, three burglaries were reported on DACC’s campus in 2009 and one in 2011; and one motor vehicle theft occurred in 2010.

In 2010, three people faced disciplinary action for carrying or possessing weapons and one person was disciplined for a drug abuse violation. There were no arrests on DACC’s campus in 2011.

Combined data for all two-year public colleges in Illinois shows there were four forcible sex offenses on campus in 2009, seven in 2010 and eight in 2011. In 2009, Illinois community colleges reported two non-forcible sex offenses on campus, but none the other two years.

In 2009, there were seven robberies reported on Illinois’ two-year college campuses, nine robberies reported in 2010 and four on-campus robberies in 2011.

There were 28 aggravated assaults reported on two-year college campuses statewide; 36 were reported in 2010 and 32 in 2011.
