LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — University of Kansas police say crime at the school last year was down significantly from the year before.

The university's public safety office says it handled 670 criminal offenses during 2013, compared with 818 the previous year.

Violent crimes accounted for only 1 percent of all offenses, while property crimes such theft and burglary made up the majority.

There were 36 burglaries reported in 2013, including 10 auto burglaries.

Campus police chief Ralph Oliver says increased use of closed-circuit cameras on campus allows his department to monitor parking lots for suspicious activity.
