Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, LA. (KALB News Channel 5) – LSUA Crime Data Report shows no increase in crime for 2012.

The annual LSUA Crime Data Report, as required by federal law, is now available and shows no increase in crime on the Alexandria campus. The list covering the 2012 calendar year, shows seven burglaries, five violations of liquor laws, nine violations of drug abuse laws, one crime involving injury, and 16 larceny-theft violations. 

All of these incidents happened on-campus and there were no off-campus incidents.  Any off-campus sites include Alexandria Museum of Art, Continuing Educations Business Incubator, Allied Health Building and the Learning Center for Rapides Parish. In all, there were only 33 reportable violations reported throughout the year as compared to 37 in 2011, 31 in 2010, and 30 in 2009. 

LSUA Police Chief Matthew Issman said when he speaks to parents at Freshmen Orientation, they are always very pleased with the low crime numbers on campus. 

There are currently two vacancies in the LSUA Police Department, but Issman expects them to be filled soon.  At that time, there will be five full-time officers and four part-time officers patrolling 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All of the officers on campus are post certified and commissioned by the Department of Public Safety. 

Issman also said that it takes his whole team working together in order to keep the campus safe and he is very proud of the work that his officers do.
