Crime Reports

The following statistics, provided in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, are for your information. Security calculates the statistics on a calendar year basis and includes crimes/arrests that occurred on the campus of North Central University, property owned/controlled by students or student organizations recognized by the university, and on public property adjacent to our property used on a regular basis by North Central. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Security Department at 612.343.4445.

Also: See crime statistics compiled by the Minneapolis Police Department (NCU is located in Precinct 1).

Points to Consider

There are problems with using crime data alone to judge if a certain address is a good place to live. Please consider the following:

  • Comparing raw numbers of crimes in two areas to decide which is more safer is difficult. The same number of incidents means different things in different areas. Some neighborhoods, such as those near downtown, have many people moving through them every day. Other neighborhoods have relatively few people in them during the day. Three daytime assaults in a quiet, outlying neighborhood might be a major crime problem; three daytime assaults near downtown might by typical or even low. This makes it difficult to compare areas just on the number of crimes.
  • No one can predict solely on the basis of past data exactly where crime will occur in the future. This makes it difficult to choose a house or a block that will always be “safe.”
  • People do not always report crime to the police - as much as 50 percent of some types of crime may go unreported. Some people do not report crimes they consider "minor," and that is an individual decision. Historically, some groups of people have been more likely to report crime to the police than other groups.
  • People are often most afraid of crimes committed by strangers. However, friends, acquaintances, and family members commit many crimes. Both stranger and non-stranger crimes are included in most of the data we provide to you.
  • Occasionally, programming or human errors cause crimes to be placed at the wrong location on maps.
  • Most importantly, many things that may make you feel unsafe do not get included in crime statistics. Everyone is different. You may feel uncomfortable in places with poor lighting or where there is a lot of noise, or where people hang out on street corners and ask for money. None of this shows up in our crime data.
  • What feels "safe" is different for each person. It is important to trust your instincts.
