River Grove, Ill. – Triton College’s highly experienced campus police dedicated to the safety of the campus and its students, faculty and staff have garnered Triton the recognition of being named the fourth safest college campus in Illinois by StateUniversity.com.

StateUniversity.com, one of internet’s leading websites for college information, has released its second annual list of the safest colleges and universities in the United States. The safety ratings are based on campus crime statistics, including aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, theft/larceny, motor vehicle theft, forcible rape and murder on campus, as reported by 450 colleges and universities nationwide.

Campus safety is a vital and natural concern of current and prospective college students and the parents of those students.
