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.
