Campuswide crime statistics

Chris Miller


According to the the most recent crime statistics report for Bakersfield College, 2014 was the safest year yet for the main BC campus.

There was a total of 17 crimes reported on both the campus and public property near the campus in 2014.

Of those reported crimes, only seven of them were actually committed on the campus itself. The numbers were much higher in 2013 and 2012. In 2013, there were 14 on-campus crimes reported and in 2012, there were 25 on-campus crimes reported. Most of the crimes in 2012 and 2014 were burglaries and car thefts.

The types of crimes reported vary from sexual offenses and theft to domestic violence and stalking. There were fewer burglaries and car thefts in 2014 versus the two years prior. But there were more stalking and crimes of a more violent nature reported in 2014 than the two years before.

There were only six disciplinary referrals given in the entire year of 2014 for illegal drugs, weapon, and alcohol possession on campus compared the high 12 disciplinary referrals given in 2012.

No arrests were made on campus in 2014.

The crime statistics report for 2015 will be updated next year. For anyone wanting to see the report, a PDF download is available at:
