Problem Statement : It has come to our attention that there is an alarmingly high crime rate on the campus of the University of Tennessee and in the surrounding area, including Fort Sanders. It seems that every week there is a new report of an assault or robbery. The following is a plan to make the UT campus and surrounding area safer by reducing the crime rate, particularly violent crime and robbery. The plan seeks to improve safety by increasing the effectiveness of law enforcement personnel, improving lighting in dangerous areas, and increasing access to emergency services. Customer : The primary customers of this plan will be the students, faculty, and staff of the University, as well as the people who live and work in the area. However, there will be secondary benefits to businesses in the area and to the University itself because a safer environment will increase the number of patrons to each business and will improve the image of UT for potential students and faculty. Provider : The providers for this plan will be the University and the City of Knoxville. This will primarily come through the Knoxville Police Department and the UT Police Department. Data on the Issue : The crime rates for Knoxville and the UT campus area are high both when compared to other universities and national rates. Table 1 and Figure 1 show the crime rates for the UT campus area for the last three years. There is a marked increase in crime rates from 2005 to 2006. This shows that the crime problems are not currently being appropriately addressed. Figure 2 graphically compares the crime rates in Knoxville to both the national averages and Auburn University, while Table 2 gives the crime rates for Knoxville and the national averages for each crime.
