Education Department to launch online crime statistics database

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Department of Education plans to launch an online campus crime statistics database this year, requiring colleges and universities to submit their crime statistics to the department electronically.

The Web site will provide campus crime statistics from colleges and universities from 1996 through 1998, the same data that should have been made available to the public on campuses last fall.
