Michigan State University Ranks First in Arrests

By  | 

Michigan State University ranks first among higher educational institutions for the number of weapons arrests made in the year 2001.

Statistics released by the U.S. Department of Education and featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education indicate MSU officials arrested 32 violators that year.

Officials say it's not surprising the university ranks highly with such a large population of students and an aggressive, active police force.

Michigan State police officials say the ranking proves they are doing their job and making arrests.

Reports indicate most of the arrests are made during traffic stops, and police most often confiscate knives.
