Current crime statistics

LSE being an educational institution encourages an open environment. LSE comprises of 30 large buildings & potentially 11,000 inhabitants working here in the heart of a great city - our crime rate is nothing to be complacent about - but it is not exceptionally high either and certainly not frightening - violence is unusual. The Security, Reception and Porters teams are there to help you.  

Crime Statistics help us to combat crime and ensure that our actions are directed by hard facts as opposed to rumours. Rumours can be destructive and un-justifiably raise fear.  To aid understanding we publish the most recent set of statistics below, along with annual figures going back over the last five years which give some depth to consideration of these issues:
