Massasoit Makes Safest Colleges List
May 3, 2019 – Massasoit Community College was recently named one of the Safest Colleges in the U.S., according to the National Council for Home Safety and Security. Massasoit came in 95th on the list, coming out in front of hundreds of other U.S. colleges and ranked within the top 10 colleges in Massachusetts.
The National Council for Home Safety and Security used data from law enforcement and FBI crime reports and compared 490 colleges across the country with student populations of 1,000 or more. Using information about crime rate (both violent and non-violent crimes) and police adequacy, the National Council for Home Safety and Security compiled the list.
Massasoit’s ranking is due to the excellent police service that the Massasoit Community College Police Department provides the campus at all times. Through efficient law enforcement efforts and a tight-knit partnership between the police and the community, the Massasoit Police Department maintains a safe learning environment year-round.
