BALTIMORE, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- UCrime.com, the first and only crime mapping and alert service for colleges and universities, today announced the addition of 100 more schools to the list of those it covers.

We will continue to add new colleges and universities to meet demand for this vital information."
