UW Crime Notifications

This afternoon, the University of Washington Police emailed another “Notification of a Criminal Incident” (a student was robbed for $20 and a six-pack of Dr. Pepper).  I forwarded it to a friend north of the University, and she replied, “Remind me never to walk south from my house after 11 p.m.”

That got me wondering. When do these notable crimes happen, and where? In email archives, I found 47 emails from the last 2.3 years.

When do crimes happen near campus?

Where do they happen?

I added ~1/2 block randomness to spatially separate multiple crimes at the same location.
