GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) According to the Clery Act, all colleges and universities are required to keep and disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.

On Wednesday, Colorado Mesa University here in Grand Junction released their annual crime report and some interesting trends appear in the numbers.

During 2012 CMU did see an increase in the number of drug and alcohol-related incidents, but many at the university are attributing it to the constant growth of the school.

"Our challenge is really to set good examples," says Vice President for Student Services, John Marshall. "We provide opportunities for them to get engaged in healthy activities and to ensure we hold students accountable when they do make bad decisions."

In addition to early outreach through residential programs, the university administration and student government do an annual night-time campus walk through to identify parts of the university that are unsafe.

They've also created Mav-Rides, a nighttime shuttle service for students.
