UNK 'disappointed' with agency's $65,000 in fines

UNKKEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — Officials at the University of Nebraska at Kearney say they're disappointed about $65,000 in fines over its previous record keeping of crime statisticsUniversity spokeswoman Kelly Bartling said Monday the fines are connected to a random review in 2010 by the U.S. Department of Education.

The department noted a lack of geographical breakdown of incidents in UNK's statistics. The school was also cited for not properly distributing its security report to prospective employees and graduate students. A third issue involved the school inaccurately reporting a burglary as a larceny.

UNK filed a response in 2011 to resolve the issues. The department imposed the fines in July.

Bartling says school officials are "disappointed" with the "nature" of the fines. A message Monday for a department regional office was not immediately returned.
