Annual Report: Measuring Effectiveness Of An IP Camera System

Our university has made a significant investment in the campus-wide I.P. surveillance camera system. By all indications, the system has been very effective and has provided a considerable return on the investment. However, I am looking for metrics that might be incorporated into an annual report to quantify effectiveness. We have several "war stories" where the cameras were used to solve serious crimes. I am looking for ideas (and ideally a sample report) including important information to insert into in such a report that would be presented to the university administration.
