Security releases 2017 crime and fire log

Madelyn Swenson, News Editor

Each year Winona State Security releases with an annual crime and fire log. The 2017 annual crime and fire log came out on Sept. 28.

In this document, there are lists of what constitutes as a crime on campus, punishments for such crimes, the boundaries that security patrols and other important information.

There is also a chart for each Winona State campus that lists the number of incidents for certain crimes going back three years. For this log, those years include 2015 – 2017.

These incidents are also a combination of the numbers from the four areas security covers: on-campus property, public property, non-campus property and residence halls.

However, the information included in these graphs are only from the Winona State campus in Winona, Minnesota.

The graph above illustrates the number of drug and liquor law arrests.

As one can see, the number of drug arrests have been fairly steady for the last three years.

However, the number of liquor arrests have decreased from eight to zero in the last three years.

The graph above illustrates the difference in the liquor and drug violations.

The liquor abuse violations have been a lot higher than the drug violations. They have also decreased by 256 violations between 2016 and 2017.

The drug abuse violations have been decreasing steadily over the past three years. The violations go from 40 violations to 20 violations to zero violations.

Above, the graph illustrates the number of rape, fondling and burglary incidents.

Fondling is defined when a person caresses another in an erotic way.

There were no incidents of fondling in 2017, though there were six incidents of it in 2016.

The number of rapes on campus have also declined by about half from 2016 – 2017.

There were many other crimes listed with statistics in the annual report. However, these were the crimes that had number for the main Winona State campus.

If you want to read more about crime and safety on the Winona State campuses the report is available for all to read on the Winona State website.
