BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The University of Vermont’s police department has released its arrest data for the past year following a public records request.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/29Y660c ) UVM police made at least 67 arrests in 2015, although the names of those arrested in at least four additional cases were left off the public arrest disclosures.

In comparison, the Burlington Police Department made more than 2,700 arrests last year.

UVM Police is the only fully-operational police service run by a public university in the state. UVM officers possess statewide authority as outlined by state law.

A majority of the arrests were made near UVM’s campus at the top of Burlington’s hill. But UVM officers ventured as far from campus as Williston Road in South Burlington to take a suspect into custody.
