Crime has always been a hot topic on Duke's campus. In late February, a student reported an attempted kidnapping on Central Campus. Students have also voiced concern about how long it took the University to send out a DukeAlert after a suspicious individual entered a dorm on West Campus in September 2017. The Duke University Police Department has said it is increasing the police presence around Central Campus and improving lighting. DUPD does publish an annual crime report, with the most recent covering the years 2014-16. However, the report groups its on-campus categories by the terms "residential facilities" and "on-campus." What these reports do not provide is how crime is distributed between residential facilities on East, West and Central Campuses and now the 300 Swift complex. Similarly, the "on-campus" section does not explain how crime is distributed between different locations such as the Bryan Center or libraries. Vice President for Administration Kyle Cavanaugh explained that the structure of crime reports is prescribed by the U.S. Department of Education. Crimes are thus broken down by building type (e.g. residential building, non-residential facilities) instead of by campus. Where exactly on campus is crime most prevalent? The Chronicle scanned and analyzed DUPD's weekly crime logs between January and December 2017 to create a snapshot of crime patterns during the year. Summarizing 2017 The majority of reported crimes took place at the Duke Hospital, followed by East Campus, West Campus and lastly Central Campus. There were about 135 reported crimes in East Campus residence halls, significantly more than took place in West Campus dorms. The vast majority of East Campus incidents involved student alcohol violations. East Campus had more reported alcohol violations than West and Central combined.
