School Crime and Safety 2015

The Bureau of Justice Statistics, in collaboration with the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), has released "Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2015." This annual report provides the most recent data on school crime and student safety. The indicators in this report are based on a variety of data sources, including national surveys of students, teachers, principals, and postsecondary institutions. Topics covered include victimization at school, teacher injury, bullying and cyberbullying, school conditions, fights, weapons, availability and student use of drugs and alcohol, student perceptions of personal safety at school, and crime at postsecondary institutions. This year's report also includes a spotlight section on juveniles in residential placement facilities based on data collected by OJJDP.
