The Question

Chief, you alluded to statistics outside the University. In the future would it possible for you to share with us the crime statistics outside the campus so people can get a better picture of where we are?

The Answer

The answer is yes. We've already begun to work on that [resulting in the Crime Comparison Chart on Page 12 of the December 2011 of the President's Message]. I've personally met with the deputy commissioner of administration from the Baltimore Police Department and we're working on a way to get those statistics sent to us every month. Not only do I believe it will help us and make people feel better about what we have here in terms of our conditions, but we also can maybe use it as a marketing tool for this University to allay the fears of those who've maybe seen 'The Wire' or 'Homicide on the Street' on TV and think they don't want to attend a university, even one as great as ours, in Baltimore.
