Security Services – crime figures

Security Services sold its 1,000th bike D-lock at the UAS Conference on 1 October, but has now sold over 1250 in total. To celebrate, the team gave the lock free-of-charge to Joanne Cave, a second year Master’s student at St Johns College. University staff and students can purchase a lock at the discounted price of £15 – call the team on (2) 72944 for more details.

Three D locks in a line The latest University City Crime Statistics for England and Wales, ranking the safest and riskiest Universities for student related crimes, has ranked the University of Oxford in sixth place among the 120 entries, climbing 25 places since last year's rankings. A key factor in achieving this higher position is the large reduction in property crime, most notably in the theft of cycles.
