Drug and alcohol violations increase at UH Manoa

By Dan Nakaso

LAST UPDATED: 05:38 p.m. HST, Oct 04, 2012

Drug and liquor violations inside dorms and other campus residences at the University of Hawaii’s flagship Manoa campus soared last year, while campus-related burglaries and aggravated assaults also increased.

The number of liquor violations inside UH-Manoa dorms and other campus housing jumped from 524 in 2010 to 719 last year, according to an annual safety report released today.

Drug-related violations inside dorms and other campus housing also shot up — from 238 in 2010 to 390 last year.

During the same period, UH-Manoa saw 12 “forcible” sex offenses on campus, including six in dorms or other campus housing. The number of forcible sex offenses remained the same as 2010, when most — 10 — occurred in campus housing.

The report also showed that on-campus burglaries increased from 48 in 2010 to 64 last year.

But the number of on-campus vehicle thefts dropped at the same time — from 39 in 2010 to 16 last year.

Lousy reporting. The jump in alcohol and drug incidents are up, in part, because of a change in reporting offenses. They used to record a alcohol or drug use at a party as a single offense. They now record each offending person. At least the TV news took the time to explain this out.

Raise the admission requirements! (SAT & ACT) More smart people on campus should turn things around for the better....maybe. Set up several HPD satellite offices on campus to ticket and arrest the rift raft.
