UNC campus security review to hold public forum

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

A group looking at security on all University of North Carolina campuses wants to hear from the public.

The panel reviewing whether campuses are responding properly to allegations of sexual assault and other violent crimes holds a public forum Monday at North Carolina State University.

The state's public university administrators created the group after a pair of cases this year accusing campus officials of burying reported crimes.

Current and former students and the former assistant dean of students at UNC-Chapel Hill complained to the U.S. Education Department that the university was hostile toward sexual assault victims and under-reported campus crimes.

Investigators found campus police at Elizabeth City State University didn't investigate more than 100 alleged crimes. The school's police chief resigned and its chancellor retired.
