FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Newly implemented requirements governing how colleges and universities respond to sexual violence have contributed to the thickening of yearly mandated campus safety reports.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1YTU1uV ) reports Thursday was the deadline for state schools to distribute a safety report recapping 2014 crime.

With the additional emphasis on sexual violence this past year, Capt. Gary Crain, an officer with the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville’s police department, says this report includes more information about “what to do if a person is a victim or knows a victim.”

UA-Fayetteville’s 68-page document listed a total of three rapes, down from six rape reports in 2013. Among other large universities, Arkansas State reported three forcible sex offenses in 2014. And Arkansas Tech reported one forcible sex offense in 2014.
