  • School Crime Rate Declining

  • School Crime Rate Declining

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ON Bureau of Justice Statistics



    WASHINGTON, D.C. ĖĖ Reflecting the national decline in crime rates, crime against public and private school students has also dropped, according to a new report by the Justice Departmentís Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and the Department of Educationís National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The report draws on data from a number of federally-sponsored programs to inform the nation on crime and safety in schools.

    Between 1992 and 2001, the violent crime victimization rate at the nationís schools declined from 48 violent victimizations per 1,000 students to 28, and between 1995 and 2001, the percentage of students who reported being a victim of crime of violence or theft at school decreased from 10 percent to 6 percent.

    The report is the sixth in a series of annual reports from the Justice Department and the Department of Education and is organized as a series of indicators, with each indicator presenting data on a different aspect of school crime and safety. In some cases time periods reflected in the indicators may vary since the report contains the most recent crime and safety data available from a number of separate federally-funded studies. This year's report repeats many indicators from the 2002 report, but also provides updated data on fatal and nonfatal student victimization, nonfatal teacher victimization, the percentage of schools reporting crimes to the police, discipline problems at public schools, and disciplinary actions taken by public school principals.

    This information came from a US DOJ online article.
