VIDEO: Search crime on campus and in your neighborhood

SMU Light of Day Project from SMU-TV on Vimeo.

The Light of Day Project, completed by SMU journalism students, includes interactive maps of crimes reported on campus and around the area. Students can browse crimes reported in their own neighborhoods, ranging from minor to serious offenses.
