DOE to post crime statistics on Web site database

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Current and potential students should soon have easy access to campus crime statistics through a Department of Education online database.

Officials from the DOE began compiling campus crime statistics from colleges and universities in August for collection in the database, which will give students the opportunity to view crime information from colleges and universities around the nation in one place.

The DOE will present the data to Congress in December. The information will be available on a DOE Web site the department will make available after it concludes collection in October.

The database will be available at starting September 15, 2000.
