Want to Prevent WVU Campus Crimes? Be Informed

Logue Law Group

There’s been a lot of news lately about college students behaving badly, and my alma mater, West Virginia University in Morgantown, has earned its fair share of those headlines. Let’s face it: Where there are colleges, there are college students who sometimes make unwise decisions that lead them to be charged with crimes such as underage drinking, public intoxication, vandalism, and harassment. While you’ve likely seen the headlines, you might not be familiar with the statistics – or how serious the issue of college crimes is being taken federally.

An FBI study from a few years back said crime in schools is “one of the most troublesome social problems in the nation today.” According to the report: “Not only does it affect those involved in the criminal incident, but it also hinders societal growth and stability. In that light, it is vital to understand the characteristics surrounding crime in schools, colleges, and universities and the offenders who reportedly commit these offenses so that law enforcement, policymakers, school administrators, and the public and properly combat and reduce the amount of crime occurring in these institutions.”

To that end, I wanted to let my friends in the West Virginia University community know that they can stay up-to-date with the types of crimes being perpetrated on campus by simply visiting the school’s website. The WVU website publishes a publicly available police log detailing reports taken from its internal police department. The page lists incidents by day, and 90 days’ worth of reports are available. In addition, there are links to the Morgantown Police Department and area correctional facilities. Also of interest is an interactive crime mapping tool that allows users to search for crime by address and more. Like anything, the only way to combat and prevent college crimes is to have a better understanding of the crimes being committed, and where. And West Virginia University is giving the community the tools to do just that.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...

I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
