Temple University’s campuses were recently ranked as the safest in the state, according to the website yourlocalsecurity.
Temple, along with the University of Pennsylvania, has some of the largest university police forces in the country, with Temple police employing roughly 125 officers.
The criteria included campus size, which the website states it only looks at universities that had at least 1,000 enrolled students and types of crime. More importantly, the survey looked at Campus Safety and Security Surveys provided by US Department of Education to report the campus’ crime statistics.
Rutgers University was named New Jersey’s safest university and the University of Delaware was named Delaware’s safest school.
