TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana State University police say data show the campus is safe despite two recent incidents, including a shooting involving two students.

The university’s Annual Security and Fire Report shows burglary far outweighed violent crime incidents on campus between 2011 and 2013.

The statistics are gathered as part of the federal Clery Act that requires colleges and universities to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.

ISU Police Chief Joe Newport tells the Tribune-Star (https://bit.ly/ZJkXmg ) the data show ISU is “good to above average” on an overall safety scale.

The report shows ISU had 24 on-campus burglaries in 2013, 17 in 2012 and 28 in 2011. One murder was reported during that time, along with three robberies, six aggravated assaults and two vehicle thefts.
