Robbery most serious campus crime

By Chase Carvalho - Staff Reporter



Robbery was the most serious crime on Highline Campus last year according to a recent report. However, the 2016 Annual Security Report showed that Highline for that year was a relatively safe campus.

There were no crimes reported that year for anything whatsoever for college related incidents occurring off campus on public property.

Robbery is defined in the Annual Security Report as "The taking or attempts to take anything of value from the care, custody or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear."

Last year there were five robberies, one being with a firearm and the rest being strong arm.

Highline has seen an increase by two incidents from 2015 to 2016 of motor vehicle theft which totaled for last year.

Arson was reported twice in 2016 and burglary once, which parallels the previous year.

A single incident of forcible fondling was reported for 2016.

The last of the incidents included in the report for 2016 were five incidents of stalking which has increased by one from the previous year. 

Stalking is defined in the report as engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for his/her safety or the safety of others; or suffer substantial emotional distress.

For the year of 2016 the number of incidents reported from all categories totals 26.

Highline has seen an overall decrease in crime since 2015 which had a total of 34 incidents reported.
